Blended Reality Is RFID—Immersion at the Item Level
Hewlett-Packard is leading the development of new computational capabilities to create mixed-reality environments (blended reality), with the goal of merging the physical and digital worlds to create new and better experiences for people in the home environment, at work and in movement. The new HP Sprout is a good example of a PC architecture that integrates multiple technologies to provide a single immersive experience for individuals. RFID and NFC technologies are key to tracking items and providing more information about physical objects in the digital world. HP is looking for ways to take another step forward to bring blended reality to the item level via RFID and NFC.
