RFID And Mobile Phones
Tech Digest lists 5 ways RFID and mobile phones are being used at Korean operator SK Telecom's demo centre.
Physical world connection was listed as #2.
We used to be boggled by the idea of Japanese mobile users taking cameraphone snaps of QR codes to get information on CDs, books or print ads. Now SK Telecom is doing a similar thing with RFID. Hold your phone up against a product, and you'll receive information or a link - in the case of CDs, to listen to samples of the music. It also works with food, allowing you to scan a carton of milk to find out its history.
