Great book with tons of information! A+,
This review is from: RFID Toys: Cool Projects for Home, Office and Entertainment (ExtremeTech) (Paperback)
I have to admit that I am not the typical reader of a book like this. I am not tech savvy per se, and I don't often build projects at home. I found this book via an Amazon search while looking into RFID about a month or so ago and decided to order it. There has been so much talk recently about security and RFID that I thought a new angle on the technology would be something I would like to know about. Mr. Graafstra has definitely brought new ideas to the table. These ten projects, while the center of the book, are simply a means for Mr. Graafstra to make his main point: that point being that RFID is not the mark of the devil, or a means of tracking individuals by the government, but rather a means of identification, and as such, has varied applications, many of which can benefit the home user. I found his writing style easy to understand, and the descriptions of how to actually make the projects well laid out and clear as well. I would recommend this book highly to anyone interested in filling a Saturday afternoon building interesting projects, or if you are like me and not particularly savvy with a soldering gun, I would recommend it highly as a means of finding out more about a new emerging technology from someone who is obviously at the forefront of imagining uses and applications for it.
