NFC Nail Business Card

NFC is one of the short-range wireless communication standards, and is a technology that allows you to exchange information simply by bringing them close together without touching them. It is familiar in everyday life with Suica. Using the NFC chip, I tried to make it possible to convey the profile and operate the home appliances just by bringing my finger closer.First of all, let’s write the profile on the chip and set it as a business card. Create two nails to tell your LinkedIn profile for work and your Twitter profile for private use. I used JAKCOM’s SMART NAIL. When you open the package, it contains one small NFC chip that can be attached to your nails and six nails. I used two here.

Since there is no information at this point, write using a smartphone with NFC function or NFC reader / writer. I wrote an application called “NFC Reader Writer” on the Andoid smartphone.

From the menu, select WRITE NFC TAGS → Write a url, website …… and write the URL of the Linkedin profile page. I also wrote a Twitter profile page. Of course, you can also write Twitter, LINE, Facebook, contact information, portfolio URL, etc.

Place the chip on the NFC writing / reading part of the smartphone. Then press the “WRITE DATA” button. it’s simple.
