Swingline has a vision for the future of tacking documents in an office via RFID tags. These tags would be attached to staples that hold your document pages together. Then if you loose it you can use the RFID reader to find it.

Perhaps they will make the stapler red, then we could use it to bind our TPS reports together and surely if some one steals this stapler from your desk you could track it down with it being loaded with RFID tags and all.An even better use of the tech might be slipping a staple into the bosses pocket so you can tell when he is coming, that way you could pretend to work. At any rate if you tend to keep a sloppy office like I do, RFID tags on your important paperwork might be a great idea. Story and image via Sci Fi Tech.
