Few weeks ago my akbil(İstanbul city transportation pass by IETT company) got broken. It was really bad for me since I had a student card which pays discounted fare to bus, metrobus, metro etc.. Getting a new student akbil requires to get a student certificate and visiting an IETT(public transportation company) office. So I decided to fix my broken card. Of course I hadn’t thrown my broken card. I was actually carrying it with me still.
My card was broken from one side only but the NFC antenna was broken. So I needed to remove the chip and attach it to some other antenna. I starting scraping the card with a knife because it was made out of PVC. It was a tough material it was impossible to see where the chip is. I guessed some part found antenna parts but all my guesses were wrong. I was thinking maybe the broken part was holding the chip.. Since broken part was missing I lost my hope. Then I started burning the card with the help of a lighter.
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.
