A FRESHER START FOR BUDAPEST 
StartCap kicked things off in spectacular fashion last night. Its first public appearance was a great success.
A crew spent the day rigging the entire space of a bar in central Budapest with RFID readers, antennas and wires ready and waiting to trigger some fantastic surprises whenever a bottle of Strongbow Gold was opened. 
Technically, everything worked brilliantly although the sheer number of RFID tags around (particularly the one misplaced in a crew member’s pocket) meant a couple of activations were triggered accidentally. 
Lesson learned. 
Going forward each tag will have its own unique ID that can be discarded by the computer immediately once it’s been read.
We’re currently editing the footage from the event and hope to share a film of the night with you on here and our Facebook page very soon.
