Violet Mir:Ror Connects All Your Stuff via Rfid

by Paul Strauss

This new device uses RFID technology to connect your physical possessions with the digital world. Cool.

Violet (the makers of those quirky Nabaztag USB rabbits) is about to unleash Mir:ror, a small puck-shaped USB gadget which acts like an interface between your everyday belongings and your computer.

For example, you could place an RFID tag on an umbrella, wave it over your Mir:ror, and your computer would display the current weather forecast. Hold up your cocktail shaker to open the latest drink recipes. Place your remote control on it, and bring up tonight’s TV schedule. The connections you create between the real world and the digital world are only limited by your imagination.

To use the Mir:ror, simply place a tagged object on top of the device, and it’ll automatically execute a task on the machine that you’ve synced up with your items. The Mir:ror can instantly identify many objects with built-in RFID tags, but you can tag pretty much anything you want with their colorful identification stamps (called ztamp:s). Violet’s new web site lets you set up all your devices and applications to work with the Mir:ror.

Violet expects to release the Mir:ror in the US on October 27th, and you can order the $69.99 starter kit (including Mir:ror, 3 ztamp:s, 2 nanoztag rabbits, and an additional skin for the surface) over on Dynamism.
