John Edgar Park's RFID Conveyor Belt



I saw this at Maker Faire 2008. John Park created a neat conveyor belt with an RFID reader under it. When you place one of the wooden tiles (with an RFID chip) stamped with the icon of a website or application on the moving belt, the reader sends the ID to a computer, which loads the corresponding website or application. John's how-to project will be in a future issue of MAKE magazine.
