Trend Alert: RFID Meets Gaming
We’re seeing more and more RFID applications popping up, and they’re sure to make their way into the event world sooner rather than later. For RFID with a gaming twist, check out GreenGoose, a soon-to-be-released sensor-based technology that awards points to people for performing tasks.
The kit will come with an egg-shaped base station that plugs into your wireless router, and a variety of wireless sensors that can be stuck on objects you use on a daily basis, For example, stick one on your toothbrush and every time you brush your teeth, you’ll earn points.
The RFID sensors are battery-operated and last about a year. The company plans to offer a variety of apps including the ability for developers to create their own apps. For more information, and to pre-order a $24 kit, go to www.greengoose.com.
