RFID Radios


"Matt Brown's laser-cut RFID radios were first conceived while he studied interaction design at the Umea Institute of Design in Sweden. A design firm he was applying to at the time asked him to do a 'personal project around music,'" wrote Thomas Wilson in an article that appears in the latest issue (#26) of Make magazine.


More: "Brown's idea is to affix an RFID chip inside a laser-cut, flat-pack paper radio, and then pair the radio with a speaker base with an RFID reader."


"Each radio would be designed by a different musician or artist. When the radio is placed over the speaker, the station shifts to that artist's pre-selection."


"This system tries to add a little bit of fun to internet radio and give people a connection with the artists they choose," says Brown.


Way cool.
