    Description
    Distinguishing itself from existing efforts in NFC (Near Field Communication), the company developed a new type of communication technology involving a simple touch control called eNFC. When you wear a specially designated wristband or ring device for eNFC, your body becomes able to authenticate with a single hand touch, since it is communicating data through electrical impulse. The potential market is ample, as users would be able to communicate with the 4 billion existing NFC devices by wearing one of these new wearble devices.
