RFID Media Player Controls Interaction With Physical Objects

An innovative tactile media player uses wireless sensors to control digital processes.

The Oslo School of Architecture and Design has created Skål, a media player that lets users interact with digital media using physical objects. Skål comes in the form of a bowl in which a range of physical objects can be placed to play back related media on the TV. It is made out of solid oak, and uses a wireless sensor to detect RFID tags attached to individual objects that are placed in the bowl. Skål can play all kinds of digital media such as movie-clips, Youtube channels and Flickr photo streams.
