Finally, a practical use for NFC tags. Oksu is a little printer that turns your digital world into physical post-it notes, letting you share or save them for later.
The printer doesn’t print on conventional paper, but instead an NFC tag sandwiched between card and a material called Z-Ink paper. Z-Ink is a bit like receipt paper. The ink is actually stored inside the paper and drawn out by heating it. When then user sends an item to the printer an image of the content is printed on the paper and the NFC tag is written to. The digital post-it can then be scanned by the printer or mobile device which launches the digital content.
Imagine doing some research, finding images and links and saving them to some complicated note-taking website, or worse – Microsoft Word. Now imagine printing images, videos, websites and pinning them on a board for you to actually see and access with a quick scan.
I don’t think it’s world changing, and I know that NFC tags aren’t cheap, but Oksu will definitely make life easier and much more fun.
