A multiple intimate media environments demonstrator

The core concept demonstrator developed as part of the MIME project was the concept of a Glow Tag. Glow Tags acted as simple memory prompting devices used to evoke previous intimate memories.

The developed Glow Tag devices exploited small PIC based micro controllers and a series of radiometric devices in order to build a wireless addressable alter device. A simple protocol was used that allowed users to send signals to these devices in order to change their state. The concept demonstrator was shown as a working prototype infrastructure at the disappearing days fostering links with Smart its, Accord and Feel leading to the generalization of the infrastructure to meet some of the needs of these projects.
