Stage a Sound Coup with Matt Brown’s RFID Paper Radio


The RFID Radio by Matt Brown is a little piece of gadget gold. These laser-cut paper designs from the Sweden-based designer are aesthetically interesting and revolutionary for recording artists, charities, and designers. Both a form of art and a marketing tool, the RFID Radio just might change the way you look at your speakers.

The RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) component of Brown’s design means that the owner of the gadget can program any speaker to blast their desired message, station, or song on any speaker system by simply placing the RFID Radio over top of it. For domestic use, a user could have a different sound or message in each room, and if you’re a designer or an artist who would like to market your material, carrying around one of these precious paper designs will ensure that your message will be heard loud and clear from any speaker you choose.

“This system tries to add a little bit of fun to internet radio, and give people a connection with the artists they choose. The radios themselves would hopefully be cheap and collectible little sculptures, each one accessing unique stations”, Brown says on his blog.
