I seem to be on a digital kick these days. Between the wifi shoes and umbrellas to this RFID idea – I’m finding the interaction between objects and visible action to be worth exploring.

When you let your key-tag touch this hollow, the visit will be told to the real key holder.“
On the iconic side of things, here’s a good example of an object that has been transformed by technology, yet the shape of the object is defined by it’s past. You can read more info about the key transponder HERE.
