You may have heard of NFC business cards, and been wondering what they are. NFC stands for Near Field Communication, and it is a radio communications standard specifically for smartphones and similar devices.

NFC business cards contain an NFC microchip embedded within each business card. When held up to a smartphone, the NFC business card instructs the phone to perform a specific task, such as going to the business’ website, or downloading a file (such as a presentation or a song).


Other uses for an NFC business card include having the phone’s mapping app pull up a map and directions to a specific location, or having the phone immediately add all of the contact information contained in the business card to the phone’s contacts app.

But wait, there’s more. Because major players in the business card space, such as Moo.com, now have apps out that allow you to control the instructions on the chips in the cards.

Moo has even put together a little video, to better explain NFC business cards:
