Today @reilytech and I were at the space and – after hanging a fresh whiteboard (progress!) – we sketched out a technical system that would allow books to tell you where they are on the library shelves.
Put some UHF rfid stickers on the inside cover of books.
Set up just enough UHF sensors (probably 5?) to be able to triangulate where the books are in space.
Set up a terminal next to the library with an interface that lets you search for books.
I’m just getting this all in here to kick off more concrete thinking about the project and keep track of material details (e.g. what RFID reader we might get). We’re open to having other people join us on this.
