No surprise it doesn't work with Apple. They would want to sell you an iRing at three times the price, then claim that it's new groundbreaking technology invented by them, like, err, contactless charging...
Hey @mark - it is doable yes, see our work we did with henry holland for example..
We tend to collaborate with design studios for tasks like this so if you need support / assistance / consulting it's best to email firstname.lastname@example.org
That was it! The culprit seemed to be a rather poorly written app from our city's public transit company, that is supposed to use NFC to read transit card info, but actually never works. The keyboard issue appears to be gone with this app removed.
Thanks for the tip! I'd never have guessed it, the app wasn't active or even open as a background process.
It's not about "stealing" so much, it's more about an unnecessary disclosure of my personal information.
Historically speaking each time humanity gives up some privacy(for convenience) it comes at a cost. Imho it's not worth the trade off because biometrics have too many pitfalls.
Any authentication mechanism that can't be reset or changed is a security vulnerability. -- every security researcher ever.
I recon eventually every phone will have this built in, It will just be users choice to not use the feature. I do agree with you that invasion of privacy has gone to far already !!
Xperia series from my perspective. I've tried a lot of phones, but the Xperia series seems to have the best most consistent read at the moment. (They all use the same little square antenna, it's a good match.)
I've possibly got it a little easier than most, my weapon of choice is the Australian version of a 68 Dodge Dart which doesn't have a steering column lock. I'll be deleting the ignition barrel from the dash board and the door locks from the doors.
The challenge will be to integrate a reader in each door, hopefully in the old lock barrel position underneath the painted surface of the car to function as a dual unlock/open point using electric latches and pop-springs. This coupled with shaving off the door handles should make for a bit of a wow factor, I'm imaging reaching out to the door and basically having it pop open towards me.
Something similar for the boot lid would be cool too.
The real trick will be embedding the sensor underneath the paint and still leaving it usable, should be interesting!
Looks like your connection to NFC Ring Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
