Flomio launches custom 3D printables with an NFC Tag embedded
This story can be summed up by the name of Flomio’s video above: “NFC + 3D Printing = Awesome” — here’s more about this new project from 3ders.org:
NFC specialist Flomio has launched a new service that makes 3D printed objects with an NFC Tag embedded inside. Flomio has innovated a process of reliably embedding an NFC tag into the 3D printing process. “This is different from simply attaching a sticker tag to the bottom that anyone can remove.” said Richard Grundy, co-founder and CEO of Flomio to NFC World.
You can send 3D model file (.stl format only) to Flomio and then choose build size, NFC Tag, and color plastic (white, green, or blue). If the quoted price is accepted Flomio will print this NFC custom 3D printables in ABS plastic and deliver it at your door….
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
