The Physical Internet

paris1.jpg

This installation piece by Tim Schwartz is attached via a network cable to the internet where it monitors news and search results for “paris hilton” and “paris france” and displays an average result in real-time.

I love the idea of using physical objects to display data generated in the digital world and vice-versa.

Bakertweet from the peeps at Poke has been generating a lot of buzz recently.

Sermad has also pulled together some nice examples of the internet and real world coming together.

I wanna talk about this a bit more after I’ve sorted out the thoughts in my head.

iPhone RFID: object-based media from timo on Vimeo.

Last bit of nerd shenanigans for today…

This is a prototype of an iPhone media player that uses RFID embedded in physical objects to control media playback.

Another interesting idea to put in your back pocket and bust out later.
