E-ink display wirelessly powered by NFC

E-ink display wirelessly powered by NFC

The NFC-WISP is an open source platform, with hardware and firmware freely available to collaborators.

The team paired an Android phone to the NFC-WISP and employed a wireless power harvester microchip to gain energy from NFC [near-field communication] transactions between the phone and WISP, which is then stored in a 1mAh battery that is 0.17mm thin. Think of the Android phone as the electrical outlet into which the display is plugged.
