The project was carried out by Jack Schulze and Timo Arnall as a collaboration between BERG, a British design consulting firm, and Touch, a research project housed in the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, with the express purpose to study near-field communication and wireless proximity-based technologies.
The video was created using a custom-created LED wand that lights up whenever it is in the presence of an RFID field. The collected images of the wand glowing at various points, then created a composite animation with those pics, which turns out looking like the atomic orbital 3d.
With this video, the Touch Project hopes to educate designers about a technology they feel is generally misunderstood, and inspire them to use RFID in creative new ways. They even created a fancy new logo, which is based around the distinct look of the RFID electromagnetic field.
