There’s no arguing that RFID is a powerful technology. Here’s one small example use of this amazing technology – the Twitter Cat Door! One creative cat owner/programmer was tired of neighborhood cats coming into the garage and scooping all of their cat’s food… thus the inspiration for the Tweeting cat door. Using a clever door, RFID collars on the cats, and a Twitter account, the owner now has an automatically fed Twitter account for the felines that does a shout-out every time one of the cats enters or leaves the premises.Now, only authorized cats are permitted to enter the premises (thanks to the RFID collars) and when the door is opened or closed a Tweet is sent.
An update from the VE team about iSynth… In early March, Apple Inc. released iSynth, the unofficial Photosynth iPhone application. Developed by an independent developer, Greg Pascale, iSynth enables iPhone customers to search, browse and explore synths directly on their phones. People can view the synths by tapping arrows on the screen to move to a different photo in normal mode or drag their fingers in the direction they want to rotate in orbit mode.
