Smartrac, an Avery Dennison (NYSE:AVY) company, and blockchain startup SUKU, today announced a digital verification solution to authenticate COVID-19 testing kits and personal protective equipment (PPE). The NFC-powered platform enables instant verification of authenticity and provides end-to-end supply chain transparency.
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.

ITN International, Inc.
INTERACT is a mobile app that allows event attendees to use their smartphones to capture contacts and content during events. Contact information is acquired by touching other attendees’ NFC event badges, or phone to phone. Content is acquired by touching a smart poster or an ITN BTAG (an NFC hotspot); or by proximity to a BLE beacon. The app also builds a complete timeline of the attendee’s NFC experience throughout the event. Besides contacts and content, the timeline includes the attendee’s booth visits, educational sessions attended; points scored in games, and tickets redeemed—all resulting from touches to the attendee’s badge.
The mobile ePassport scanner is an accessory for phones, tablets and laptops that can turn any of these devices into a passport or eID scanning and verification tool.
