SILVER SPRING, Md.—RFID Revolution, an RFID education and consulting firm, has introduced RFID Roulette, an Internet-based game designed to help people learn about radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.
RFID Roulette challenges players to distinguish fake RFID applications from real ones. The free game can be accessed at www.rfidrevolution.com.
"New applications in the consumer, business, health care, and government spheres are being introduced every day," says Leslie Downey, principal at RFID Revolution. "Some of these increase safety, like tracking the location of miners 450 meters underground; others increase efficiency in manufacturing or moving goods; and others, like tracking golf balls, free players to spend more time swinging and less time in the weeds. With the market changing so fast, our firm's challenge is that some imaginary applications today become real tomorrow. We welcome feedback from players, and invite them to submit new questions and graphics that can be included in a new release of the game."
Earlier this year, RFID Revolution commercialized an interactive, Internet-based tool called RFID Essentials that helps professionals develop RFID knowledge. The educational product is available to individual subscribers and organizations with multiple users. Individuals may subscribe to the entire, eight-hour course or any of its nine modules.
