MIT Has Developed Hack-Proof RFID Chips

Although I have the utmost confidence in MIT, calling something "hack-proof" could come back to bite them in the ass later.

Researchers at MIT and Texas Instruments have developed a new type of radio frequency identification (RFID) chip that is virtually impossible to hack. If such chips were widely adopted, it could mean that an identity thief couldn’t steal your credit card number or key card information by sitting next to you at a cafأ©, and high-tech burglars couldn’t swipe expensive goods from a warehouse and replace them with dummy tags.
