Smart Jigsaw Puzzle Assistant


RFID and Games

"ABSTRACT: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can be used as technology for coupling the physical and the virtual world in ubiquitous computing environments. In this paper, we show that RFID is also a very interesting option for building augmented real-world games. First, we describe several advantages of employing RFID technology for the development of gaming applications. Then we present the Smart Jigsaw Puzzle Assistant, a fully operational augmented jigsaw puzzle game which we have developed and prototypically implemented using miniature RFID tags and a palm-sized RFID scanner." From The Smart Jigsaw Puzzle Assistant: Using RFID Technology for Building Augmented Real-World Games by Jürgen Bohn.
