Rock Paper Scissors

Demo web app that allows you to play Rock Paper Scissors with another user via NFC

  • Reads NFC tags
  • Writes NFC peer to peer messages


The RockPaperScissors demo was written for Android 2.3.3, where the phone sent the NFC message to the peer immediately. Later versions of Android changed how this worked. Google added "push to beam" functionality which essentially breaks this demo.
