Meet the nano:ztags

My new little RFID packing bunnies accompany the mir:ror that I linked to last week. Basically these little rabbits and those three little ztamps (say it like "stamp") have microchips in them that are activated by the glowing pod sitting behind them. Programmed with a web interface, the nano:ztags and ztamps can be set to activate software, send automated messages, check the weather, open web pages, and do basically anything that can be programmed into a windows batch file (for more complicated interactions). I haven't had a lot of time to fool around with them yet - and I need to brush up on some coding for windows scripts, but so far its fun to play with and a nice looking gadget (and black and yellow are great colors!)
