The world of RFID gets more interesting and useful with a starter kit from Tikitag.  You get 10 adhesive-backed RFID tags and a USB reader, plus kewl applications.  For instance, put a tag on a person’s photo, then swipe it over the reader to place a phone call, or visit that person’s website or YouTube videos.  Put a tag on a souvenir, and swipe it to see a photo album and narration of a favorite remembered vacation.  Put a tag on a toy and swipe it to see a cartoon of that toy’s character in action.  It’s the “Internet of Things”, with great potential for people with cognitive or sensory disabilities.  Swiping is pretty physically easy, too — no contact or specific path is required.
