Tag-Con: A Real Object Interface using Multiple Manipulable RFID Tags
Recently, RFID technologies are used in many opportunities such as electronic money and new applications are being developed in human-computer interaction using RFIDs. In this paper, we propose a real object interface using multiple RFID tags. Usually, one RFID tag is attached to one object. As a result, only two interactions could be used, to get the tag close to the reader, or to get it away from the reader. Although, sometimes rotations and sides of an objects create different meanings such as dice, cards or the signs hung on the doorknobs. Those kind of contexts aren’t used in the RFID technologies. By using multiple tags in one object, it is able to use the physical posture of the object for interaction. Compared to sensors, the power supply isn’t required for RFIDs and also they are considerably low cost. We have developed a cubic type that could be controlled by rotation and developed two types of applications; one is to control the status of the MSN Messenger, and the other is to control the channels of TV. Also we have developed a button type and a card type that could be controlled by pressing the buttons.
