Your probably going to have more success with RFID tags. Readers are available that will interface easily with an Arduino via serial.

Thread starter #3
Yes i know, there is alot of rfid with arduinos on the web,
Arduino is not the only option, I am just looking for someone who can actually start and finish firmware with either an arduino or a PIC16-18-24
