RFID Toys: Cool Projects for Home, Office, and Entertainment Paperback - 2006

by Amal Graafstra


From the publisher

Radio frequency identification now belongs to the masses, and it lets you control all sorts of things. Like access to your front door. Or valuables in an RFID-enabled safe. You can corral your stuff within an RFID-monitored perimeter, or build a shelf that tells you when you're out of hot sauce. This book shows you how, with step-by-step instructions, illustrations, photos, and a list of the tools and tech- nology you need for every project. It even supplies the lowdown on read/write tags and--for the truly extreme--implantable chips.

About the author

Amal Graafstra is an entrepreneur and jack-of-many-trades. Currently involved in no less than three different companies, he still finds time to think up interesting ways to apply various technologies in his daily life and wield a soldering iron from time to time. Amal is CEO of Morpheus Inc., a computer and networking company that specializes in supplying managed terminal environments to the medical industry.
He is also president of txtGroups Inc. (www.txtgroups.com), an SMS text messaging company soon to launch group messaging services across Canada, with plans for expansion to the US, UK, and Australia.
Since learning about the contactless RFID technology used in cats and dogs for identification, Amal wanted to leverage that technology himself. Getting an implant meant there was no need to carry an RFID access card around and he could implement his own RFID access control systems instead of buying expensive off-the-shelf products. Soon after getting his first implant (www.amal.net/rfid.html) and posting some pictures of the process for a few friends, word quickly spread over the Internet and soon he found himself talking to everyone from industry players to clergy to book publishers about RFID technology and its possibilities.
