Check this out! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, amazing sticky notes enter your life.
In an attempt to bring one of the most famous inventions of the 20th century into the digital age, scientists of the “Ambient Intelligence Group” at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed the “intelligent stickies”.
These are essentially Post-its with a twist – the notes written on them can be managed by a PC that will be able to remind users of any information stored on the small paper notes at the appropriate time, via a variety of digital devices. In a project that combines artificial intelligence, RFID, and ink recognition technologies, the MIT team says they have managed to make the popular sticky notes much more useful.
