Do you still have some free time this summer and looking for things to do? Here’s a bucket list for you in case you need some ideas!
RFID Sensors? If you like keeping an eye on advances in technology that have been around, this report might be of interest. MIT News reported last month that researchers have been working on turning “passive RFID tags into sensors” that can be used over long periods of time without batteries or charging. For example, “RFID tag-antenna that changes the way it transmits radio waves in response to moisture content in the soil. The team also fabricated an antenna to sense signs of anemia in blood flowing across an RFID tag.” This means it could be used in a multitude of ways including checking patient glucose levels and carbon monoxide detecting.
