The Reading Glove, developed by Josh Tanenbaum, is an RFID glove that extracts digital information embedded in objects. In this project, it is used as a novel, non-linear interactive form of storytelling. As the wearer picks up objects embedded with a unique RFID tag, the objects reveals its latent digital story in the form of of audio, projected visualizations, and text. The glove is made using an Arduino Lillypad Microcontroller, an Xbee Series two wireless radio, and an Innovations ID-12 RFID reader. It wirelessly communicates to a computer running Max MSP which uses the tag information to trigger digital events. Interested in building your own? Josh has nicely documented the Reading Glove here.
