RFID is a technology for short range interaction between two devices: a scanner and a chip, usually embedded in physical objects. In our case, these will be cards, which you’ll use to create a battle card game.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is found in many applications: the MOBIB cards, access badges, anti-theft systems... We will provide USB scanners for this workshop, as well as white cards containing the RFID chips.
Your first RFID application will be a battle-style card game programmed in Python and based on an old classic: rock-paper-scissors. First, setup up your deck: full rocks? scissors and paper? Then, challenge your opponent. During your game, you’ll gain knowledge of your opponent’s white cards deck. Use that to your advantage!
Through this workshop, you will learn the basics of RFID technology and the vCard data structure used as virtual business card. After this workshop, up to you to create your own application!
1)Basic knowledge of Python or other programming language. Not sure of your level? Check the materials of our first Python workshop.
2)Bring your laptop (warn us if you come without one). Extra: grab your NFC-enabled phone if you have one
