Timo Arnall, the acclaimed interaction designer, alerts us to the fact that Touch project PhD researcher Kjetil Nordby has just published two journal articles on interactions with RFID and NFC.

“These articles pull together concepts from ubiquitous computing and HCI, integrated with high-level interaction design practice, alongside analysis from activity theory, and come up with novel theories for the field of design research.”

In the Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing the article Multi-field relations in designing for short-range RFID analyses some of the conceptual foundations for multi-field inputs with RFID enabled artifacts.

The article Conceptual Designing and Technology: Short-Range RFID as Design Material published in the International Journal of Design unpacks RFID—or fields—as design material, and looks at designers motives around emerging technologies.
