RFID to Facebook arrives in US

Mercedes is offering visitors at the PGA championship the chance to connect with their Facebook profiles via RFID

We recently discussed how a resort in Ibiza was using RFID to connect vacationers to their Facebook pages. Now, the concept has already arrived in the U.S.

Mercedes has brought this concept to the U.S. by setting up ten kioks at the PGA Championship in Atlanta. In addition to the kiosks, approximately 25,000 people received VIP passes with embedded RFID chips. Once VIPs arrive, they can simply register on an iPad to use their passes to check-in and like any of the cars.

View the video below to see the RFID Facebook kiosks in action:
