One problem for vendors at big trade shows is getting people to visit all the things they have on display. So Globacore made a game of visiting everything at the Intel booth. Visitors register and get NFC wristbands that they scan at each Intel kiosk they visit. Before leaving, users play a video game, and features of the game are unlocked based on which booths they visited.
My part of this project was to build the NFC scanners documented in the YouTube playlist below. To create the desired maker aesthetic, I cut the cases from acrylic. Intel Galileos and Edisons were used for the computing of course. For NFC, the Adafruit PN532 shields were used for NTAG wristbands in one version, and in another, Solution's Cubed bm019 were used for ICODE wristbands.
