Yes, I absolutely agree with you, it should be as fast as we scan RFID enabled cards. If it is like Bluetooth pairing process people are not going to hold it near POS for long time.

Do you need to plug your pillow into an outlet? Maybe it can energy harvest fluffing the pillow or snoring instead... The iPillow no doubt...

It will be interesting to see how consumers respond to NFC once it goes beyond trials and into real deployment. It seems an excellent choice for brief transactions, but I think that for longer transactions, the average consumer will find it annoying to hold his/her phone so close to the POS terminal for more than a few seconds.

NFC is a very required feature on Mobile Phones, Since Mediatek has not launched NFC support chipset most of the mobile phone manufacturers will be now able to support NFC Protocols on their products. This is because most of the low cost mobile phones are running over Mediatek chipsets.

Agreed...this seems to be the most innovative circuitry at ISSCC

It would be great if ISSCC had an easily accessible posting of all the papers for reference so everyone could read about these interesting papers.

The cochlear implant was my favorite and will likely change medicine in that realm. Way to go MIT and friends

I love the cochlear implant that suggested embedding a charger in your pillow or cellphone. Very innovative.

Thanks for picking out some of the more interesting papers from the Monday night demo session. I am told next year they will go back to having two demo nights. I went Tuesday night and was disapointed there were no demos.

These demo nights are a great way to pull out a couple dozen novel papers with significant commercial potential from the dozens of dozens of papers at the overall ISSCC event.
