RFID Audio Trigger

Hi all, I'm trying to build an install for an event that I'm running and I'm struggling to come up with a solution, I'll try my best to explain.

8 Screens looping videos with RFID readers attached 8 sets of headphones for people to pick up (colour coded) 8 RFID Cards colour coded to match the headphones When a delegate taps the RFID card on the screen, the audio from that screen plays in the headphones with the same colour code as the card.... and thats it!

I have access to an Echo Audiofire 12 and can use numerous desktops/laptops raspberry pi's etc, any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Re: RFID Audio Trigger

I've made something similar with qc and an arduino some time ago. For the arduino with a ID-12 rfid reader I've based my code on these sources: http://bildr.org/2011/02/rfid-arduino/ with software serial to communicate with serial: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/SoftwareSerialExample

Then I received the tag ID trough serial (with kineme serial input). The kineme audio file player can adress different audio channels, but I don't know if that still works.
