Scratch built RFID tags

rfid.jpg

[nmarquardt] has put up an interesting instructable that covers building RFID tags. Most of them are constructed using adhesive copper tape on cardstock. The first version just has a cap and a low power LED to prove that the antenna is receiving power. The next iteration uses tilt switches so the tag is only active in certain orientations. The conclusion shows several different variations: different antenna lengths, conductive paint, light activated and more.

    Glad to see that this site works well on my Blackberry Bold, everything I want to do is functional. Thanks for keeping it up to date with the latest.

    Well I found this on Digg, and I like it so I dugg it!

  3. I think that is an interesting point, it made me think a bit. Thanks for sparking my thinking cap. Sometimes I get so much in a rut that I just feel like a record.

    Hey mate, thanks for writing but this page isn’t vewable in Firefox it is showing only half the page.

  5. I like the first point you made there, but I am not sure I could pratcially apply that in a postive way.

  6. Great points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t write on blogs much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault at all, but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy reading the content .

    Interesting, I wonder what the statistics are on your first point there…

  8. @Marco I know what your mean. In the current economy its difficult to find a career that pays good and is consistent. I have discovered that if you just work hard and are consistent you can go places . Look at the poster of this article, they are oviously hard working and have just been consistent over time and are now enjoying at least what would appear as somewhat of a success. I would encourage everyone to just keep hustling and moving forward.
