February 17, 2005—Popular technology blog Engadget has reported that an RFID-enabled doll called Naoru-kun is being sold in (where else?) Japan by toy maker Bandai. The toy follows the popular format of requiring love and attention lest it fall ill from neglect. The difference with Naoru-kun is that the doll's candy and medicine accessories used to keep it well are embedded with RFID tags. And the doll itself, it would seem, has a reader of some sort that registers when the candy and medicine are brought near. So, when the doll exhibits signs of illness, the child puts the medicine to the doll's mouth and voila! the doll gets better.
If only your RFID deployment were so simple.
