So why not nfc tags now we’ve seen nfc tags from multiple different manufacturers like scs and magatag inc themselves and they’re, mostly just kind of test kitty? No one really has packaged one up quite as good as this. This is hanvon. Hanvon has made e readers in the past. In fact, they were one of the first color e readers ever made back in 2010.. This is the hanvon m card. This thing is nfc updatable via their application. We’Ll show you in a bit because this is an unboxing and review all in one we’re, not just going to unbox this, because there’s so little to this unit that it wouldn’t really warrant its own video, so we’re just going to take the plastic off for the First time here you can see you can download the applications from the back of the box via qr codes. If you want – and we will open up this little tiny box, i don’t even think there’s going to be usb in here, because you don’t need to charge this no there isn’t. So here is the device itself now. This is the whole thing. It has a little information at the bottom serial number a loop for the little thing they give you here, it’s like a little style, um it’s, like a you, know those phone charm loops and then the screen here there is no user interact ability, meaning you can’t Touch it it’s not touch screen, there’s, no swipe it’s, not capacitive, it’s, not resistive touch nothing.
This is a passive unit, which means you utilize things like your phone and its nfc to tap it to the back, and it will update with whatever you want, based on the application. Now this is hanvon so again, this is a major brand backing this. In the past, we’ve seen some things you can just buy on ebay and ally and they’re they’re, just you don’t know what to do with them, but they’ve packaged this for you, both literally and figuratively, they’ve packaged it in a way where you can download the application And use it to its full potential. Now, how do we use this? Well now we have to go over to the phone. If you scan the one on the right, it will be wechat that will download and open up if you scan this one on the left. This one will immediately automatically start downloading the hw ebook application apk that you’re going to need to utilize this. Unfortunately, the app is only going to be in chinese, but there’s only five things and it’s, not a huge learning curve, so tapping the bottom left corner. Is your settings now you can choose this, which is just turn on your nfc, so that’s that, and this just changes the color of the app itself. No, it will not reflect the color of the m card. This is not tri color, like the ses omega tag. This is only black and white, so that’s that clicking here allows you to write, choose pictures phone number or a scan qr code right there.
So what we’re going to do is just do something simple and just write something so we’ll go here and type in good ereader space x hand on. I wonder if we can space that out, we can okay, so we’ll go with that. So we’re going to go with that and press back. You do have a few things you can do. You can center it. You can justify it to either of the sides and you can change the font styles as well. Once you have that written grab your card, make sure you have your nfc on tap the back and it’s going to think for a little bit. Just let it do its thing. Don’T move the the hand on tag, and then it will have updated right there. So now it says goodie reader x hand. Von again, you can’t change this there’s no strings attached there’s, no wireless connectivity – that is a constant nfc, is a one shot deal. You tap the thing it’s used to scan in your your smart watch. Like your sony, smart band or it’s used to update things or transfer data in an instant it’s, not a it’s, not a constant connection like bluetooth or wi fi. So you can update it to many different things, just by doing that. Secondly, we’ll go over to images and what we will do is pick an image from our phones gallery now. Something to note if you want to put a picture of your kids or something like my son here, i’m gon na go here and i’m going to click.
Ok, but you can see how bad it looks, because this has terrible resolution if you’re going to use something like a full image from your phone. You are going to be set up for disappointment because it’s not going to look very good it’s going to look very sloppy and a lot of the detail is going to be gone, so this is kind of reserved for something a little bit more simplistic. So actually, what we’re going to do is use the actually guy, because this guy is hilarious and it’s very low res. So when we put that up against the unit with nfc now and once that’s done there, he is your best friend. So when it comes to simple stroke, kind of images and something with a little bit less depth – and you know less backgrounds – it can be keyed out a lot easier. So with the first photo had a lot of you know the blue sky and the cherry blossoms and everything there’s too many layers and the the the shadows and the highlights weren’t coming through. So it will be reserved for something a little bit easier like this. Thirdly, we can do phone numbers. You click on this and it’ll go through all the contacts in your phone i’m, not going to show you that, because there’s some sensitive contacts but we’re going to show you what the end result looks like. So this guy doesn’t exist anymore, so feel free to call it.
What you do is you click on a contact. Then you put your m card up against the back. Let it do its thing and much like any other nfc transmission. It immediately puts it on your card right there and the fourth one being a little bit more customizable. So what you can do is say what is this and you can add a picture as well. By going to your gallery, i just chose a little cartoon tree and then put what is this next to it? Put your nfc tag up against the back exact same process for each individual section and you’ll get a nice little tree with. What is this, so you can really customize what you want to put on your tag. The only other thing you can do with the app is click on the history and it’ll show you all the things you’ve just done now. This is really nice and we like this, because this is the first time if you’ve skipped ahead, that this has been packaged for you there’s an app there’s the unit itself. It has a recognizable brand name, it’s, very simple – to use yes it’s only in chinese, but as you’ve seen from this video, you can write whatever you want on here. This thing is completely customizable. Obviously it is that’s.
