At the Taipei Computer Association’s awarding ceremony a couple of days ago, an interesting technology was showcased by a Taiwanese company named DAGi. DAGi, a company who happens to own patents related capacitive stylus, introduced an information transfer storage and transfer solution called iCard. Sources from the web pointed out that the solution uses a capacitive touch screen to transfer the information. The iCard is also reportedly compatible with Android and iOS devices. In fact, as you have seen on the video, the demo uses an iPad and an iPhone 4S to read the card.
Essentially, the iCard has sensors on its back. DAGi explains that an iCard can either be used to transfer information such as a YouTube video or an eBook via capacitive touch. The demo used two iCards with one sporting the image of Steve Jobs and the other of NBA superstar Jeremy Lin. Both were used on the iPad and iPhone 4S to pull out the information from the iCards. But so far the technology behind the iCard is a trade secret. DAGi didn’t really explained the actual technology used on its iCard, so we’ll just leave it on the table for now. The Taiwanese company hopes to market the iCard as a secure locker for files like ID tags, password, private photos, and videos.
