Bulacard Enabled the Public to Send Video Message to President Obama via RFID

Bulacard-video-message-rfid-blogXtremeSignPost, Inc., a company using RFID technology to integrate and share consumer experiences with personalized products, presented personalized, interactive, self-addressed Bulacards to the office of Congressman Mike Thompson. These cards contained links to personal video messages to President Obama.

XtremeSignPost has developed an integrated system to share public messages. The system is based around the Company’s U.S. patent 7843334 issued on November 30, 2010, which is entitled “Method to promote and distribute multimedia content using radio frequency identification tags.” It promotes public involvement in local and national politics through the sharing of personal experiences using SMS, instant messaging, email, or social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.

In this process, RFID-enabled cell phones such as Samsung’s Galaxy S3 running on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are used to recall and share video messages from personalized RFID-tagged Bulacards.

XtremeSignPost’s technology allows the public to actively participate in interactive projects and share their voices on the “The Internet of Experiences.” The public records and writes links to video messages on Bulacards that are delivered to Washington, D.C. Each self-addressed card contains an RFID-encoded digital link to an electronic message. After receiving the Bulacards, the White House can place the cards back into the US mail system so that they can be returned to each participant. Messages on the self-addressed Bulacards can be retrieved, displayed, and shared using near field communication (NFC) cell phones. The circular system of sending messages to The President and back allows each participant to replay and share their personal messages. Through active participation, hidden voices from the public can be revealed, displayed, and disseminated on a global scale. The issue is sharing experiences.

“I can’t wait to make another Bulacard. I hope that President Obama listens to our hidden voices and then shares them on the Internet of Experiences,” stated Dr. Monto Kumagai, CEO and President of XtremeSignPost, Inc.
