Shisha Embroidered RFID Tags

Craft & Design


RFID tags are those tiny identifiers in your keyfobs, pets, and quickpay systems. I use them in various art projects and games where the idenfication of specific people is important, but often they come in ugly packages that are cumbersome to use. I started using these flat disc tags recently, and in order to incorporate them into useful everyday objects, I made these shisha embroidery RFID wristbands, personalized for each person. The tag is visible the same way the mirror would be in traditional shisha, and I think the copper coil looks quite attractive.
