Clean living in 2016. What does this mean? In a world where it is essential to carry multiple items for everyday life, contactless payments are the norm, we at NFC Ring believe that it’s possible to drop the baggage and put a ring on it. And yes, we got there before Beyoncé.
Forget about rings exchanged at the altar – we believe a ring can do more. Our NFC Ring allows core every day scenarios to be seamless, with quick payments for food, drink, subway and bus tickets, easy access into your own home without fumbling for your forgotten keys, and a ‘flick of the wrist’, to exchange contact details.
We have partnered with leading companies and cities worldwide to revolutionise mobile payments and transport ticketing for consumers and enterprise customers. At the event we will be showcasing NFC Ring’s ability to be a universal product, useful for all consumers globally. Our launch at the Rio Olympic Games, with Visa demonstrated this.
We found in our studies that the groan-inducing hold-up at the barriers to the London Underground are reduced by up to a half, and believe Barcelona is a great stage to showcase the NFC ring, given the city’s fantastic transportation links and vibrant tech community.
Our smart ring is thin (around 1mm thicker than the previous generation) to make it comfortable for every day wear, and is designed to withstand everyday life with a scratch-resistant and waterproof ceramic coat. Our initial release is available in black and white, or an assortment of colours. Think of it like an upgrade.
The ring is a talisman we all know, no matter where you live. By working with major brands and payment networks, users are able to use the NFC Ring globally, improving people’s experiences in cities; bringing people together through tech and tradition.
Our team member Lawson Emanuel from our London office will be at the Smart City Expo in Barcelona from 15-17 November – please do get in touch with him if you would like any more information.
NFC Ring is proud to join The London Mayor’s Office for the 2016 Smart City Expo in Barcelona.
