NFC RFID Activates Israeli Digital-Entertainment Complex
At Mogo Park, children use Tadbik's NFC wristbands to launch electronic games, as well as collect scores, photos and videos.
Sep 13, 2016—
Breeze Creative has developed Near Field Communication (NFC)-based technology for an Israel-based digital-entertainment park that enables visiting children and teens to operate the approximately 20 interactive games that the complex provides. At Mogo Park (part of the Oshiland shopping mall operated by Israeli real-estate firm Oshira), players wear a wristband, provided by RFID technology company Tadbik, that not only launches games, but also collects game scores, photographs and videos.
Breeze Creative is a design, development and production company that provides experiences for museums and other facilities with interactive exhibits and content.Mogobe online game, in which children create virtual worlds by building houses, accumulating and spending coins, and going on adventures. At Mogo Park, players can take the game one step further by interacting with kiosks and screens allowing them to participate in challenges, such as firing balls at a target. Players can earn points that can be converted to digital coins that they can then use in the online game after they leave.
The park consists of game kiosks and screens, using a variety of technologies to allow the children to interact with them. The challenge, Yehezkel reports, was in providing a uniform way for kids to access those games, as well as their scores, images and other game content. "All these applications had to be integrated with the RFID system," he explains.
Therefore, a visitor's game scores and related content are fed to the Breeze Creative software, which links that data with the unique ID number encoded to the NFC RFID tag embedded in that person's wristband. Adi Kremer, Tadbik's RFID marketing manager, says her company created a special band that would fit the small arm of a child, yet accommodate an RFID inlay large enough to be read well via the readers. To accomplish this goal, he says, Tadbik designed a die-cut tool that allowed the firm to produce the bracelets, and then fit the antenna within the band layers. The tool also allowed additional space on the band for a printed coupon that guests could use at one of the park's main attractions: the Oshiland slide.
