Great Wolf Lodge Uses RFID to Post Photos to Your Facebook for You

Posted Jun 29, 2011

A service called Great Wolf Connect uses RFID technology to let Great Wolf Lodge act as not only your personal vacation photographer, but also as your Facebook concierge. The resort company has photo kiosks placed around their Grand Mound, Washington waterpark that automatically upload vacationers’ snaps to their own Facebook accounts. By signing in at the beginning of their stay, visitors to the resort connect their Facebook login info with their RFID (radio-frequency identification) wristband.

The waterproof wristbands also act as room keys and charge accounts. Great Wolf’s press release explains that “guests simply scan their wristband and smile for the digital camera” at the photo kiosks, and the photos are uploaded to Facebook instantly. [engadget]
