As proof that the future of RFID usage is not all about inventory counts, logistics and secure identification, a London festival features a workshop for artists interested in using RFID technology in their multimedia projects.
The TakeAway Festival, dedicated to “do-it-yourself” media, is offering two sessions of a workshop exploring how RFID technology can be used in installations, interactive audio and to trigger environmental change.
“The workshop will guide participants through the technical and design processes required for RFID,” states the festival’s publicity information. “Participants will make their own prototype of an RFID application, and find out how data can be retrieved using the unique digital ID possessed by each object tagged with an RFID chip.”
Both sessions are scheduled for May 14 at London’s Dana Centre.
