Hong Kong "Octopus" sadly not completely integrated just yet.

Although I've heard a million times from almost everyone I meet in Hong Kong, people are really looking forward to be able to abandon the physical "Octopus" card already. Reason for the delay in implementation could be because of security issues or business politics, whichever it is.

This is just a watch with a built in 4kb (Mifare Classic) NFC tag. Can be programmed like a NFC tag, one useful purpose would be using it for storing your contact information so anyone you meet can have your contact details with a touch.

This watch was used at the NXP Innovation Summit 2012 in Amsterdam and is thus not on sale. The watch contained a id # for voting purposes.

Hello !

I've had the surprise to see that my student card is equipped with a NFC tag.
And I can read-write without any problem !

Now, I would like to transform it into an Xperia smart tag. Is that possible ?

tried it just now with my HOX and im not too sure what kind of app to use to read it so i got a bunch of them.

in theory, could i read the data off my oyster, and then write that data to a new tag, and then stick that tag on say an iphone and use it as my oyster card?

That would be pretty cool, being able to have something like that.

I asked about that with the Hong Kong Octopus NFC payment cards.
Its a negative as the card should have encryption and stuff to prevent this from happening.....
