Much More to NFC

NFC (Near Field Communication), which can be installed in cellphones and smartcards and other devices, is a form or touchless card reading that has now more than a half million readers. It is a form of RFID. It has been promoted with seemingly endless TV ads about their use for payment. A recent conference indicates that it is expected that there will be many more kinds of applications for NFC. At the article there is also a link to a replay of the conference.
