An increasing number of people are chosing to have NFC tags implanted under their skin. These implantable keys have a multitude of uses: information storage, replacing key fobs and swipe cards to access buildings, memberships and public transportation, as well as unlocking and personalizing personal devices and even making payments.
In this full day workshop with world leading industry experts we will learn about uses and develop solutions for NFC chip implant uses. Participants will get a broad orientation of current and potential uses based on personal user cases. For those who are interested we're offering free implants to all participants.
The workshop will include both hardware and software elements depending on participant interest.
Join us in exploring the ultimate technology frontier: the upgraded human body!
