I can't think of a single negative thing that could possibly arise from the use of such technology. Not one.

See what I mean?

Give this shit to TGRR, kill the inventor.

Everything will be okay.

Damn. That is disturbing. I'm betting it won't be used to end world hunger.

Yaaay! That guy in the windowless van found my keys! I'm just going to meet him under the highway overpass.

Not how that works.

Ah, gotcha. I just read the whole thing. So random strangers can't just get access to your tiles.

Me read comprehension good.

It DOES mean the NSA can track all your shit, but really I don't know how much more invasive that is than tracking your phone's location.

With the small size and adhesiveness, you could also easily track others, or the belonging of others.

That's a whole realm of potential criminal benefits. Once the range expands it's going to get even better/easier.

Bingo! That's exactly where my mind went. "Holy Heck, they're selling national tracking devices!!!"

But you already HAVE ONE. Unless you're letting the batteries run dry or you're storing it in a faraday cage, your phone's tracking you all the time.

No no, that one only the NSA can track, with these I CAN TRACK a target.

Exactly. Slip one in someone's bag and you could easily track down an exact address. Or workplace. Or person.

Magnet + Super Glue= Car tracker

Despite the unsettling potential for misuse, I still want one shaped like a bat. With a blinking red light as well.

Countdown to someone reverse engineering the tile detection and developing a map of valuables in their area.

The best part is, the tech is HERE. It's just going to get better and cheaper. Want to know where ALL THE THINGS AND PEOPLE ARE ALL THE TIME? In the future, you can! 

And this will be abused in no way, whatsoever!

MOSTLY KEYS AND THUMB DRIVES.

But, yeah, see where you guys are going there. I guess I focus too hard on the physically tracking me aspect.

Well, it is a tracking you thing too. It's small and cheap enough to plant on someone if you were inclined. Keys and thumb drives can be potential goldmines too. If you know the target particularly. Journalists?

Knowledge is power to a degree and the creation of new data opens up a lot of new avenues to profit from it. Exploitation of said data is a given.
