When Orange annouced that they were holding an Orange NFC Awards competition we at LongTap thought it would be a great opportunity to get our creative heads on and come up with some ideas. Several were aired and then shot down, some were placed on the back burner and a couple were submitted. We are delighted that one of them made it through to the final with 19 other great ideas.
Our idea: Bloom NFC, your NFC gardening assistant
The video below does an excellent job of giving you an idea of what is to be expected.
Basically the NFC tag would be specific to a plant and let you know how to care for it, enable you to keep a plant diary (when you watered it, checked up on it), and if the Bloom NFC tag was to come with some seeds it would would be able to provide you with a timeline of what to expect when (very useful for veg), and again, how to care for the plant at the different stages. We will head over to Paris on the 11 June to present our app - in prototype form - to a panel of judges..
