A new parkour game – tried it with NFC?

3

As NFC begins to affect our everyday lives, the information we have at our fingertips is being used in an entirely different way. Not only are we saving time by sourcing information quicker than ever before, we’re now using the same devices to implement what we know. We use our smartphones to find the local bus stop, so why not use it to get on the bus? Come to think of it you were probably in such a rush you left your wallet and Oyster card at home anyway.

NFC is all about freeing us up – making purchasing simpler and more straightforward. The art of parkour or ‘free-running’ is the embodiment of movement without obstacle, pause, or thought. To us, it echoes the philosophy of NFC technology and the freedom it allows us every day.

As I’m sure you’ll agree – NFC and M2M technology is helping us all be a bit more like James Bond… we have the gadgets, the smoothness and, we can even get the ladies.

    Really nice video, I love this:-) However, one thought raises to my mind: Would it be necessary to run so fast to buy the flowers my sweet expected from me, when buying using NFC? We are not all shaped like Mr Bond….James Bond.

    Ok, so what happens when the purchase is over £15? I think he will slow down a bit! There are a number of other problematic use cases. People aren’t shouting about those just now. Either way it is an excellent innovation that will change secure wireless interactions in a big way and probably make life easier!

    Hi there, thanks for the comment, you’re right that it’(ll slow him down a bit but he’ll just need to enter his PIN code on his phone so at least his card can stay in his wallet and no sticking it in the payment terminal in the shop etc.
