May 30th 2PM: RFID sniffer and RFIDuino [with Marc Boon]

micro_research hosts two parallel RFID-inspired workshops with Marc Boon.

RFID sniffer workshop:

The RFID sniffer is a simple analog electronic circuit which can
detect the presence of 13.56 MHz RFID tags. These tags are commonly
used in all kinds of plastic cards like access badges, bank cards,
library cards, public transport passes and so on. The RFID sniffer is
a fully self-contained circuit on a credit card sized circuit board,
including battery. During the workshop you will build your own RFID
sniffer, under my guidance.

Cost: €20 per participant (this includes all parts)

RFIDuino workshop:

RFIDuino is an Arduino shield for reading and writing 13.56 MHz RFID
tags. These tags are commonly used in all kinds of plastic cards like
access badges, bank cards, library cards, loyalty cards and so on.
RFIDuino consists of a 65x65mm circuit board, which plugs onto a
standard Arduino (NG, Diecimila, or Duemilanove). The board contains the
antenna and all circuitry to read and write to RFID tags. It is
connected to the Arduino using I2C, using the Wire library.

Cost: €50 per participant (this includes all parts)

For the RFIDuino workshop please bring Arduino (or equivalent), and

Please email m at 1010.co.uk to reserve a place (strictly limited)

Spiced food will be freely available. Please note this will be the last
workshop before Breakthrough workshop/event 24/25/26/27 June,
restarting in July!



Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
software and GNU toolbase.
