This is a short presentation of the paper 'Designing with RFID' held at the 'Tangible and Embedded Interaction 2009' conference in Cambridge UK.
In 'Designing with RFID' we explore the potential for RFID objects in everyday contexts. Because RFID is a wireless, radio-based technology it is inherently invisible once embedded, and this raises issues around visibility and interaction. How does the addition of hidden interactive qualities influence the design of physical RFID objects? There is a need to develop tangible design qualities such as shape, materials, build quality and affordances for RFID-enabled objects.
