Frictionless: How NFC is going to change the world (NFC Infographic)
Sometimes we make life hard for ourselves and this here Frictionless NFC Infographic is a great example of how. We thought we’d put together an NFC Infographic which would educate people on the potentials of NFC. Sounds simple enough, right? It would be simple too if we didn’t grow the scope of our projects astronomically. But we are crazy creatives and as one idea gives way to another, we end up with a behemoth of a task, just like we did with our “you know what would be cool? – a page that lists out every carrier on the face of the planet and then notes the NFC phones they carry” idea that took 3 straight weeks to bring our NFC phones page to fruition. We never learn, and that’s probably why we are growing as a website because we always try to be innovative with what we do, and so far people seem to like it. Everyday we post here at NFC Rumors about developments in NFC. We preach its virtues to the tech savvy crowd who hang out here and we bring you the up-to-date news about who is doing what with a smidgen of editorial opinion added for good measure. However, a large majority of people still think NFC is only about payments and we wanted to make a visual representation of how diverse this little short range communications protocol can be and add in a whole load of stats while we were at it.
Frictionless, the NFC Infographic
Our Frictionless NFC Infographic doesn’t represent all uses for NFC, we had to stop somewhere! We didn’t show the use cases for car doors, location aware tags and walking directions. We couldn’t fit in Lockitron’s NFC door locks and a whole host of other expected NFC uses. However, everything within the Frictionless NFC Infographic has related posts on NFC Rumors. As you will see, we covered the Unbanked, Remittance Payments, NFC mobile wallets, NFC marketing, NFC services, NFC Food (we like that one), NFC social, NFC tablets, NFC phones of course and a section dedicated to how NFC is green. NFC gadgets was another section we decided to include and we felt the business case for NFC was essential and obvious with so many research houses publishing projections for the industry. We even slung in NFC security just for good measure. If you want to learn more about any subject tackled in the Frictionless NFC Infographic, simply use the search box at the top of the page. It works, we promise.
