Global teleco vendor Comarch announced that it will begin offering NFC technology in its portfolio of products and services, starting with an NFC-enabled art exhibit in the National Museum in Krakow, Poland.
Developed jointly with Nokia, the “Nokia brings art closer” project enables museum goers to obtain text, photos, videos and other media on twenty works equipped with NFC tags in the Gallery of 20th Century Polish Art.
At the entrance to the exhibit, guests will be able to borrow a free NFC-enabled Nokie C7 phone, which serves as their guide as they tap from tag to tag to learn about the featured works of art.
“The project realized with Nokia is one of the first, if not the first one of its kind,” said Grzegorz Wąchocki, R&D Manager for Comarch Mobile Solutions. “Currently we are testing how fast users will get accustomed with this technology.”
