Ideas Park : A Personal RFID Network
I’ve just been skiing and here’s a problem and a solution I fleshed out with my buddy Conor (who was on the same holiday). So, your heading off toÂ the slopes, which are typically an inconvenient distance from your hotel. You arrive at theÂ top of the the first ski lift and discover you have forgotten your googles/lip balm/sun cream/gloves/hat/ski pass/ski poles/wallet/backpack/etc/etc.Â Any one of which will entail a laborious return to your hotel. Add two kids to the mix and you are guaranteed to be bungee cording too and fro from your hotel every morning.
So a quick technology fix, add an RFID tag to everything you need and get your phone to give youÂ green or red light when you leave the hotel. Better still, it calls you and says “You left something behind”, then you check the console to see what item is missing.Â This continues to work throughout the day as you stop off in gondolas, cafes, bars, creches, whatever. So you never leave anything behind again.
I’d pay for it.
