More technology ready for sandbox

NFC World: Global playing card and board game producer Cartamundi, nanoelectronics research centre Imec and Holst Centre — an initiative set up by Imec and Dutch research institute TNO — have unveiled a “world first” NFC tag made entirely out of plastic that offers the chance of “manufacturing chips in large volumes at low cost”.
Imec“This innovative hardware solution of plastic NFC tags opens up several new possibilities for NFC deployments. The new tags can be made much thinner and they are mechanically very robust,” says Imec’s Alexander Mityashin.

Mix it up and use this for smart card and price beacons.
