Last month, I took a look at just a few basic things you can do with NFC tags and a capable phone. The possibilities of things that you can do with NFC are only limited to your own ingenuity,  and we've teamed up with TagsForDroid to help you get started playing with this amazing and fun technology.

Before we get into the giveaway, though, here's another look at our demo from last month:

Like I said, those are just some of the more basic things that you can do with NFC. When combined with the power of Tasker, it really opens a whole new world of automation.



This giveaway is sponsored by TagsForDroid, a go-to place for all things NFC. They offer both Android-ified and plain white tags for all of your NFC needs, ranging in packs from two tags, up to twenty. Currently, if you buy a ten pack or larger, you'll also score a free NFC keychain, which is perfect for launching on-the-go tasks at the gym, in the car, or anywhere else you may need it.


The contest is now over. Here are the winners, selected at random:
