Violet mir:ror connects everything using RFIDIf everyday objects just aren’t connected to the digital world in the way you would like, then check this out. This device uses RFID technology to connect all of your crap to the digital world. You know, cuz life should be more digital. Violet is the company that makes those strange Nabaztag USB rabbits. Now they are offerring “Mir:ror”, a small round USB gadget that interfaces all of your belongings and your computer. For example, let’s say you put an RFID tag on your umbrella, despite your umbrella’s protests that RFID technology is the mark of the beast. Just wave the umbrella over your Mir:ror, and your computer will display the current weather stats. Tag your iPod and have it take you to current Apple news etc. The connections seem pretty infinite, only limited by your imagination.

Pretty sweet tool if you ask me. Just don’t be waving panties(Or worse) over the thing to pull up porn. That’s just weird. Mir:ror can instantly identify many objects with built-in RFID tags, but you can tag almost anything you want with their identification stamps. Violet’s web site lets you set up all your devices and applications to work with Mir:ror. Violet expects to release Mir:ror in the US on October 27th, with a $69.99 starter kit.
