Digital dog tags
From Ecouterre, comes the latest way to add value to clothing and hopefully, combat the disposable buying cycle: “RememberMe” is a tool that links recorded memories and objects to an online database by using radio-frequency I.D. (RFID) tags and Quick Response (QR) codes. The project is a collaboration between Tales of Things and the Oxfam shop in Manchester, England, and the tagging extends far beyond your favorite vintage sweater. You can tag any object and link it to media with small printable tags. But how does it all work? Find out in a video, after the jump.
