Yesterday I had to present my project for the Mock Exam comity. I’m creating a tool enabling users to associate their own narrative to objects. I want to provide people adhesive RFID tags that can be stuck on anything you like. You would then be able to tell your story by adding pictures, video’s or sound. On the EMMA project market I will show a room with different objects that have a narrative associated to them.
The comity was very positive but did tell me to improve the relation between the content of the narratives and the infrastructure (RFID). In other words, try to create narratives in the context of RFID and privacy invasion. The main reason for this was that most people, when hearing about RFID, will not be able to look further than privacy invasion. Let’s see how I can use this feedback and keep the whole project in a positive perspective.
I passed, so I’m in production fase. All the research on RFID has taken quite some time of the total exegesis. I’m not behind on schedule but it does mean I have to put extra time on production right now. My thesis is well under way though.
What’s left for me to do?
- Find the right platform (hardware/software) for my product
- Improve the relation between the content of the narrative and the infrastructure (RFID)
- Build infrastructure (User Interface, database)
- Create photo/video/audio for narratives
- Build object room
- Finish thesis
