ÖPNV bezahlen mit RFID-Fingernagel


Abschlussarbeit von Lucie Davis in Jewellery Design an der Central Saint Martins Art & Design School: Ein ÖPNV-Fingernagel. Die Dame hat den RFID-Chip einer „Oyster“-Card der Londoner Verkehrsbetriebe in künstliche Nägel geklebt, die Teile sind weiterhin aufladbar. (via heise)

“I took the RFID chip from an Oyster card and embedded it within a full set of acrylic nails to give commuters the ability to pay for their journeys with a single tap/touch,” she explains. “You can still top them up with money too. Now you’ll never have to worry about misplacing your card again!”

Richtig beeindruckt bin ich, wenn sie sich den Fahrkarten-Chip mit blinkenden LEDs in the new Flesh operieren lässt.

“I was hoping that this idea would make everyone’s next commute a little more thoughtful and enjoyable rather than our usual mindless ones,” she says. “I like to think of my work as a 21st century update to the traditional keepsake. It’s about finding a fresh new perspective on things, providing more meaning in a world we may take for granted and (hopefully) changing the way we think in a positive light.”
