NFC RFID Technology from Smartrac and FinnCode Adds Music to Kids' Book
Otava Publishing Company Ltd., a Finnish publishing house, has published a children's book that employs embedded Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID tags to add another layer of entertainment. Readers can listen to songs by tapping their Android mobile devices to the book.
The book, titled Reuhurinne: Eläinlauluja, features 30 well-known animal-themed Finnish songs. Readers can listen to 15 of these tunes on their mobile devices using the Reuhurinne Ekstra (Extra) application in conjunction with NFC FID tags.
The application, which uses FinnCode's scalable Internet of Things platform, can be downloaded from the Google Play website, FinnCode reports.
