Coolest Demo Contest
RFID Journal's Coolest Demo Contest, introduced at RFID Journal LIVE! 2012, was a huge hit, with numerous exhibitors at the conference displaying a wide variety of solutions in their demos. The winner was Keonn Technologies, for its interactive shopping experience, which enabled attendees to try on clothing virtually. View a list of this year’s participants—our demo list keeps growing so be sure to check soon.
We expect even more cool demonstrations at LIVE! 2013. These demos highlight the many applications and capabilities of radio frequency identification solutions. Visit the exhibitors displaying a Coolest Demo sticker on the floor in front of their booths, and cast your vote to help RFID Journal's editors select a winner.

HID Global | Booth 722:
More precise than the sledge-o-matic, HID’s demo is sure to leave a lasting impact. Technically speaking, impact testing is defined by the IK rating system, a standard created by the EU (defined in EN/IEC 62262). It signifies the amount of external mechanical impact an electronic device can withstand. IK ratings range from as low as IK00 (unrated and/or untested) to IK10 (maximum impact resistance). "IK01" designates that an RFID tag survived impact tests of .15 joules, using 200 grams (.44 pounds) swung on a pendulum from a distance of 7.5 centimeters (2.9 inches). At the other end of the spectrum, "IK10" indicates that a tag passed impact tests of 20 joules, or 5 kilograms (11 pounds) swung on a pendulum from a distance of 40 centimeters (15.7 inches).
Given these parameters, do you know what objects and products would survive the testing? How durable are HID Global tags? What will HID smash? How cool will it be...? The coolest!
Additionally, HID will demonstrate one of the processes that test engineers use to validate the durability and assured future performance of HID’s newest product family, the SlimFlex tag family of RFID tags with a miniature twist test demonstration. The SlimFlex RFID tags are designed for asset tracking of pallets, oddly-shaped or cylindrical objects and the twist test is used on these products as well as for contactless ISO cards. Come twist with us.
> HID Global Trusted Tag Platform and Services for Complete Authenticity Using NFC: Ferrraris and Napoleon Are Dynamite!
HID Trusted Tag Services is a new ecosystem that is available now to be leveraged by developers and customers. End users, manufacturers, suppliers and service organizations benefit by being able to trust or securely authenticate goods that tags are embedded into. This is an innovative use of NFC RFID technology. Paired with HID’s expertise of custom tag design and Trusted Platform infrastructure that already serves millions of access control users, this solution extends identity security beyond traditional RFID markets to open new opportunities where thus far mostly non-RFID solutions (e.g. hologram stickers) are used to identify authenticity. Apart from anti-counterfeiting techniques, the HID Trusted Tag Services platform offer the marketplace, for the first time, an easy to use method to prevent any data stored on tags from being altered or copied in an unauthorized way.
InfoChip | Booth 343:
The patent-pending Sniper is a thin, unobtrusive passive antenna adapter that is placed on the back of your phone or case with the supplied removable fastener tape. The "Sniper" focuses the wide signals from the NFC phone and targets them to the 4mm and 8mm diameter InfoChip DuraPlug tags.
InfoChip's free Android and iPhone apps, in conjunction with our DuraPlug tags and Sniper passive antenna adapter, bring forth a profound revolution in safety compliance, inspection management and industrial asset management.

microsensys GmbH | Booth 117:
The so called TELID® product line consists of passive RFID sensor transponders and semi-passive RFID sensor data loggers. With the TELID® components our customers get a combination of sophisticated RFID technology and sensor devices for checking and monitoring physical quantities such as temperature, pressure, acceleration, stretch, electric conduction or humidity.
Together with the RFID sensor transponder TELID®257 and a Smartphone with NFC it is possible to check wireless the moisture of flower soil. This demo is the easiest way to visualize the feasible functionality of the combination of RFID technology and sensor devices.
The TELID®257 is an RFID moisture sensor transponder with a passive conductance sensor device for slightly moist measurement of flowerpots. The flower label with a sensor pin from four up to seven cm length communicates contactless based on ISO standard.
A perfect sensor application, the "TELID 257 Demo", visualizes the levels of moisture on the screen of the smart phone. First of all the NFC function needs to be enabled. Then the user starts the "TELID 257 Demo". The user places the integrated NFC antenna near the TELID 257 that is sticked in the flower soil. In the blink of an eye the sensor transponder's ID number is shown and a little graphic figures the levels of the soil moisture – an empty red jar is for dry soil, an half-filled yellow jar shows there is a bit moisture and a green filled to capacity jar displays that the soil is wet enough. No dirty fingers any longer for checking the moisture of your plant's soil!

TERTIUM Technology | Booth 736:
TERTIUM Technology will present the demo Pair&Play: enjoy RFID experience on your smartphone!
It is an innovative, interactive and amusing demo. It will allow visitors to enjoy the experience of turning their smartphone into a RFID HF or UHF reader.
At our booth, visitors will have the opportunity to try out using RFID technology in an innovative way by pairing their smartphone or tablet with a RFID BlueBerry reader.
Bluetooth pairing will allow users to read the content of a HF or UHF tag by transferring data to their smartphone with no need to install any new software. Thanks to the keyboard emulation provided by HID profile, the data stored in the tag will be directly transferred to the text field selected on their device, and straight in ASCII code.
This experience will show how simple and fast is Smartphone - BlueBerry pairing and how HID profile may simplify the integration of RFID technology with pre-existing apps.
In recent years, the industrial applications where a smartphone or a tablet is used instead of a PDA are in fact increasingly numerous. Today, thanks to Blueberry, the sensing capacity of these widespread mobile devices can be extended to the RFID world as well.
Pair&Play, enjoy your visit with TERTIUM Technology.
Trace-Tech ID Solutions | Booth 246:
The BAP is placed on a pendulum model which moves through different Impinj Mini-Guardrail antennas connected to a Speedway revolution reader. At the top of the pendulum there is a heat source that will activate the 4325 BAP alarm when the high temperature boundary is crossed. When the pendulum goes through the different reading points the alarm and local time when it was set will be displayed on a computer screen.
Once the pendulum reaches the bottom, the BAP is reset and the process starts all over again.
The carnival Demo is complemented by another screen program that is displaying the current temperature during the event on a graph.
