Hi Lifehacker, a lot of people are trying sell RFID blockers to protect your card against getting skimmed via paywave while you are out and about. I was wondering if this was a thing that can actually happen or if they are just scaremongering to sell a product?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
