Simple.There are many magic NFC app appear in the market for various magic purpose.

 

How near is ‘Near Field’ ?

NFC technology works only at close distances – typically not more than 3 centimeters. This close range makes NFC perfect for interaction and means that tags can’t ‘accidently’ be read or used for unwanted tracking. The ‘tap’ action is therefore quite specific and part of the appeal of NFC as opposed to other longer range RFID technologies, security and safety are fundamental basic in design.
