Geak Unveils NFC Smart Watch and Contactless Ring
have probably heard proposals for 'smart guns' that will only fire when
owners wearing special rings are in possession. Here is a near field
communications (NFC) ring that permits only its wearer to use a cellphone,
tablet, or other NFC-enabled device linked to its code. Doing so eliminates
the need to enter a password for access. According to an
NFC World report, the ring contains an IC that can store
personal contact information as well allowing the wearer to voluntarily
"share" certain details about him/herself (why
would you do that?) simply via proximity contact. Initially,
the ring will only work with Geak's devices, but plans are in the works
for more widespread adoption.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
