SVA MFA IxD: Prototyping for RFID and NFC

School of Visual Arts, New York, NY, January 14, 2012

Building on the RFID prototyping workshop that Carla Diana and I developed for IIT Chicago, we held a hands-on coding-and-mockup workshop for graduate students int he MFA IxD program at SVA. We taught participants the basics of prototyping with RFID tags using Adobe Flash Actionscript 3 and Phidgets RFID readers and tags. Student projects included a collaborative musical game/instrument, smart networking drinking glasses to keep track of people you toasted at a party, and a physical learning game for kids.
