Thinking Name Tags - An Innovative Style Enhancing Social Interaction
Business researchers constantly search for new techniques and methodologies that would offer a different perspective and unique factor from others in the same industry or business field.
Thinking name tags –reflecting your minds!!
Scientists working at the MIT Media Laboratory launched the idea of thinking name tag technology and were involved in testing and retesting process. Apart from the complications of design patterns in the technology like construction and personalization, maintaining the dynamicity and the nature of tags is another issue to be seriously considered. The concept of thinking of tags is simple as described below:
Thinking tags are capable of displaying different information, clearly depending on the person who is viewing it. They are able to reflect the minds of two different persons who have common viewpoints without emphasizing on direct detailed communication.
For instance, as an initial approach to the researching procedure, answers to five multiple choice questions related to technology were programmed into the electronic name tag of two different persons. When they came face-to-face, the answers of these questions were exchanged at the click of a second!! If both had common answers, the green LED blinked and if otherwise, the red one blinked. See how the interaction factor enhanced without even communicating a word!! Technology has already left a footprint in name tag technology!!

· Interfacing with computational badges
Though innovations have been made in name tags, from the security prospect like interconnecting the details of a person to a personal computer through tags, drawing out the locations through GPRS systems, innovative augmented style has never come into the notice, until the introduction of blinking name tags. Recommendable actions are being taken to interface computational badges with thinking name tags.
· No relation with context, personalization
As every information and detail is transmitted to the opposite person through electronic formats and microprocessing programming, there is no question of context, personalization, until and unless the other person realizes it.
· Transmission of sensitive data
Most of the data fed into the tags are “ice breakers”, protecting the interests of the participants. The developers are interested in creating tags which would be a source of entertainment for the people.
All types of name tags like business and employee name tags are available at Name Badges International. In addition to the standard name tags, recyclable and environment-
