Violet's Ztamps Fuse Your Online and Offline Worlds

Violet has come up with an incredible home use for RFID tags with ‘Ztamp:s,’ tiny RFID stickers that can be affixed to nearly any object in your home. Using an RFID reader called the ‘Mir:ror,’ any surface with a Ztamp can deliver or receive information on the Internet.

The Ztamp has a variety of different options, and each sticker is individually configured. You can assign the stamp on your coffee mug to open the day’s news headlines on your computer or update your Facebook status. You can link photos from a vacation onto a Ztamp and affix it into a postcard for simple photo sharing.

There are still more possibilities. Working parents can have a latchkey child wave his or her keys in front of the ‘Mir:ror’ to automatically send an e-mail that announces that they are home safely. And file folders can feature a Ztamp that will automatically open the associated computer documents when the folder is placed over the reader.
