IIT ID: Prototyping RFID and Internet of Things

IIT Institute of Design, Chicago, IL
“Interaction with RFID and the Internet of Things”, September 17, 2011

Carla Diana and I led this workshop where we taught participants the basics of prototyping with RFID tags using Adobe Flash Actionscript 3 and Phidgets RFID readers and tags. Participants built working demos of projects such as a Smart Walking Stick for the Visually Impaired, a token system for helping recruiters keep track of interviewees and a Jenga-based interactive math game. The workshop was developed on the request of IIT’s Professor Anijo Mathew.
