Leveraging NFC in experience design

Main content

Creative Technologist Tom Kojrowicz explored different NFC tag antenna sizes as part of an AP Lab experiment.

The ultimate "frictionless" experience with smartphones is achieved with a credit card-sized 48x78mm Clear NTAG213. We can see this tag provides a comfortable scan distance of ~100mm (at this distance, it is technically RFID and no longer NFC).
