Learn all you need to know to get started for wearable interaction with Radio Frequency ID tags.
RFID tags are used all around us, from your Oyster card to security tags in shops. They are tags that have a unique serial number, which can be read and identified by an RFID reader by placing the tag near the reader.
Using the LilyPad Arduino, you will learn to identify your tags and, based on the tag ID, trigger a different colour light for each tag. We will use soft circuits to embed the LilyPad and RFID tags into a piece of fabric.
All kit provided for you to take home a fully functioning RFID project. Feel free to bring your project, cushion, soft toy, garment or bag to embed your RFID into.
This would be an ideal for anyone that has attended our LilyPad Arduino Introductory workshop, but is suitable for complete beginners too.
