Recently google launched their latest Gmail experiment called Buzz. It seems we are entering into the world of social networking on the internet and the worst part is, we are entering into saturation of social networking through facebook, orkut, myspace, twitter, now buzz and the list goes on. Now anywhere and everywhere we are virtually connected to friends, colleagues, different people through laptops, mobiles, PDA and more. The question is:
- are we missing physical interaction we used to have earlier? i think, yes!!
- Very few people actually talk to family members on social networking platforms
- Aren’t we reaching to the saturation of social networking?

As a part of mediamatic RFID hackers camp, RFID photobooth was created during Picnic conference. The photo booth team consisted of Timo Arnall, Anne Helmond, Jorn Knutsen and Einar Sneve Martinussen. The idea was to create something that brought people together both in a physical activity and in an online social network.
“A photo booth that encourages people to take photos of themselves with others. By waving multiple tags over a touchpoint inside the booth, a photo is taken, a connection is made and pictures are added to the Picnic website”
A large white box was constructed, with a picnic-themed grassy interior that allowed up to about 10 people to have their photo taken at once. Inside there was an RFID reader, a camera and a screen that would show what was being recorded, as well as showing a countdown for picture taking. Outside a large LCD screen showed recent and random pictures from the booth, encouraging participation. By touching your tag to a reader outside, you could see pictures of yourself.
Photos from the booth were also uploaded to Flickr and tagged with the people’s first name (see for example all the photos taken of me and the tag cloud of the names and IDs of people who used the booth most). This realtime Flickr stream appeared on the outside of the booth, where people stood around watching their recent creations, as well as seeing random photos where they or their friends appeared.
