RFID Media Player Controls Interaction With Physical Objects

RFID Media Player Controls Interaction With Physical Objects

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

Naresh Kumar

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.
