    Hi Nwosu,
    I always wonder why NFC is not getting the attention it actually deserves. The NFC chips are really cheap. One should try experimenting with those. NFC business card is a cool interactive way to share personal details. It can be considered as an alternative to QR codes and barcodes in that perspective.

    Something off topic. The post pages have two “Confirm you are NOT a spammer”. I think you should rectify that.
