Dialing from a picture frame

Laun2 Looks like a good Make project…This would allow seniors (and others with impaired abstract thinking skills,) to dial phone numbers by just choosing a photo of someone and placing it in a holder next to the phone…you have to wonder if someone could hack this together out of, say, a CueCat, a free barcode font, and a photo printer...

  1. like that idea very much…RFIDs might be a better choice, though, especially if the target audience is kids, elderly ppl: easier to use, less error-prone. that, though, raises the challenges of finding easy to use, low-cost RFID technology…hmmm
