“Consider the following scenario: Walking down a street, you spot a poster advertising that you can buy your favorite artist’s new single right then and there. All you have to do is hold your mobile phone up close to the poster, and the song downloads directly to the phone–which also happens to be a digital music player, for easy playback. “
That’s a really stupid scenario.
“There are opportunities elsewhere in the home, too. Chhor says TV sets, stereos and other home appliances can easily be fitted with NFC chips to give them an easy way to initiate a data connection with other devices. Camera phones could easily send their pictures and videoclips to TV sets, where they’ll look better. Digital still and video cameras could easily initiate a wireless connection that allows the camera to dump images and video in a computer’s hard drive.”
NFC is going to change the world, one unlikely scenario at a time, you heard it here first.
