3 Unique Near Field Communication Uses & Videos
Near Field Communication (NFC) is sweeping the mobile industry and is already emerging as a platform developers are eager to innovate on top of. On the TopCoder Blog, we’ve looked at the players in the mobile payment race (fueled by NFC technology) and some of the potential uses for NFC outside that of mobile payment.
NFC is particularly well suited for video demonstrations as it is the best medium to share the user experience, speed and benefit of the particular application. There are some famous NFC videos already making their way around the Internet, but here are three you may not have seen yet.
Ever wish you could just see a movie poster, rock poster, or event poster, wave your phone in-front of the signage and purchase tickets? Wish granted.
The greater health & wellness space will certainly see many NFC applications coming to market in the next few months and years. Here is a particular sleep tracking application that monitors your night’s rest and a whole lot more.
Social Gaming Led by those Angry Birds
If NFC is going to penetrate social gaming, and it seems it will, it appears the now famous Angry Birds will be leading the charge, head on of course.
NFC applications are in their literal infancy but the variety of applications already springing up is a good sign this new connectivity platform will be a difference maker. Have an NFC application video or story to share? Please do so in the comments section below.
