Disney Research engineers have developed PaperID, a technology consisting of ultra-thin, battery-free Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags that can be turned into simple paper input devices. It uses sensing and signal processing techniques to determine how a tag is being manipulated by the user via an RFID reader and show how tags may be enhanced with a simple set of conductive traces that can be printed on paper, stencil-traced, or even hand-drawn. These traces change the behavior of contiguous tags to serve as input devices. These capabilities allow new interactive possibilities for pop-up books and other paper craft objects.
