We are always exploring to new ways to connect with things easily. Here we bring NFC technology to you. Now we can exchange data between android and Arduino + NFC Shield with a simple touch. You may be curious of how NFC technology can be used. There are two demos to inspire you.
We can't not tell the cat in Schrodinger's black box alive or dead. Fortunately, when we get a black box in real life, we can use some technology to get thorough understanding of the black box. Here we use NFC technology and some sensors to equip a black box with a cat. Just use a NFC enabled Android to touch the black box, and a specific app will be launched automatically and display the conditions of the back box.
Tsukkomi Paper Man
Use your android to touch the header of Paper Man, and send something to Paper Man. The Paper Man will print it out
