In the Maker Shed: RFID Starter Pack

Who doesn’t love RFID? It unlocks doors, helps you find lost pets, and even helps you pay for coffee. With applications ranging from industrial to domestic, the possible uses for Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) are nearly endless. With the RFID Starter Pack (available in the Maker Shed) you can experiment with this amazing technology yourself! Just hook the included RFID reader  up to an Arduino (not included) and you’ll be able to add a whole new level of interactivity to your projects. Want to build a smart wine rack? How about a teddy bear that responds to its surroundings? Using the variety of included RFID tags and a few extra components you’ll be able to open all kinds of new doors for your creativity.
