George Roussos and the DeTaLe project team have won an Intel Research WISP challenge award to investigate the suitability of the platform for tangible interfaces. WISP = Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform. WISPs have the capabilities of RFID tags, but also support sensing and computing. Like any passive RFID tag, they are powered and read by a standard off-the-shelf RFID reader, harvesting the power it uses from the reader's emitted radio signals and thus requiring no battery.
