Augmented Reality Theater (AR+RFID) @ unDEAF, satellite event of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival 2007, Rotterdam 

Augmented Reality Theater is an interactive installation with virtual 3D animated puppets in AR, data-gloves and physical objects tagged with RFID. For the first time both technologies – Augmented Reality and Radio Frequency Identification – have been combined in an entertaining, interactive show pushing traditional puppet theater to the 21st century. Using a data-glove, the user is able to control the position and facial expression of the puppet in Augmented Reality. Besides that various physical objects tagged with RFID are used to trigger changes in the puppet's behaviour and looks.

Interactive Photography (RFID)

Different elements of a multilayered photograph projected on a wall can be displayed or hidden using an interface made of tangible RFID-tagged objects and a table with an embedded RFID reader. But instead of simply "taking" pictures of these objects and presenting them on screen in a realistic way, the system projects their unexpected and sometimes surprising, symbolic interpretations in form of an imaginative, associative photomontage.
