This process shows design methods for attaching
an RFID tag to an object, but also reveals some of
the ways in which objects inherently lend
themselves to becoming RFID-enabled.
Hiding tags inside objects raises questions about visibility.
1. How can embedded tags be signified by shape, material or sign?
2. How might we use features of an object to guide the user towards the
use of the tag.
It also exposes the importance of developing design qualities such as
shape, materials, build quality and affordances.
These making, sketching and visualisation processes
may be important approaches for the applied design of
emerging technologies in general.
