2018-03-29 (Th) JeanLucPickCard COMPLETED

It was a lot of fun making different NFC cards, but they had two functions. They were an NFC finding tool and a business card. People usually wanted one or the other. Granted, anyone who wanted, and NFC tool was happy to accept a business card with it. As a clear gimmick, a card was designed where the NFC antenna could be removed from the card and the removable section could be used as a guitar pick. There was absolutely no reason to think that a guitar pick was any more useful to someone who needs a business card or NFC tool but it was fun to make and fun to name.

JeanLucPickCard was a play on words combining the Star Trek Captain, Jean Luc Piccard, with the words, Pick and Card. If nothing else, this may serve as a reminder of the versatility of business cards and PCBs.

When the boards arrived, LEDs were soldered and tested with an NFC field. They were successful. These cards contrasted the smaller antennas which didn't work.
