Radio-frequency identification (or RFID) - an undeniably cool technology. We all love it and we all want to use it in a project - but might not know how. Tons of questions abound in regards to RFID. What is the range? Which RFID reader and card should I use in my project? Can I embed one of your chips into my back a la Jason Bourne? (By the way, the answer to that last question is - please don't)
Rojas, our handy film makin' guy, and Tim from Tech Support tackle a lot of the questions you might have about RFID in our new RFID comparison video. This video will give you a nice little intro into RFID and help you figure out how to implement it into your next design. We carry a bunch of RFID products, so if you watch the video and get a hankering to make this technology a part of your next invention, we can set you up.
Next, Denver NBC news affiliate 9News came to SparkFun about a week ago and shot some video around the office for their segment called "Colorado Companies to Watch." They did a nice little profile of SparkFun and what we're about. You can read the article and watch the video here (unfortunately, I can't embed the video on the homepage). A hearty thanks goes out to 9News for their great portrayal of SparkFun!
