Product description

Just as we identify things using information from our senses, so do computers. They can identify physical objects only by using information from their sensors. One of the best-known digital identification techniques is radio frequency identification, or RFID. The RFID tag pasted on the side of a book may seem like a universal marker, but what it means depends on who reads it. Based on the projects from the first edition of Making Things Talk (from the same author), this book shows you how to create projects with Arduino, Processing, and the Getting Started with RFID kit from Maker SHED to identify physical objects.

Author information

Tom Igoe teaches courses in physical computing and networking, exploring ways to allow digital technologies to sense and respond to a wider range of human physical expression. He has a background in theatre, and his work centers on physical interaction related to live performance and public space. He is a co-author of the book Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers, which has been adopted by numerous digital art and design programs around the world. Projects include a series of networked banquet table centerpieces and musical instruments; an email clock; and a series of interactive dioramas, created in collaboration with M.R. Petit. He has consulted for The American Museum of the Moving Image, EAR Studio, Diller + Scofidio Architects, Eos Orchestra, and others.
