If objects could speak what would they say? And how could this become reality?
Utilising radio frequency identification( RFID) this device allows the narrative of our lives to be told through the objects we own and the memories associated with them. Memories about the objects (embedded with RFID tags) and their owners can be recorded and played back using the device and then also updated as new memories are formed.
The device is intended to create a different way of preserving and cataloguing information about our family history and ourselves, that can live on after we die, to be passed to future generations.
The project explores potential uses for RFID technology and was the result of investigation into subjects including oral history, ubiquitous computing, sentimental value, heirlooms and memory preservation.
