Interactive Hats is an audio-visual installation presented in the entrance hall of the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague during the Open Day in January 2005.

It consists of interactive animations – made in Macromedia Flash – controlled by tangible, physical objects: hats. If one of the hats lying on the table is placed on an active area, (where the RFID readers are mounted under the table) the system will project a short movie associated to it. The goal of this project is to investigate the possibilities of combining RFID technology and interactive multimedia in an entertaining way.
