Healthcare technology provider MC10 and product solutions provider PCH are to commercialise MC10’s Wearable Interactive Stamp Platform (WiSP), an ultrathin, stretchable and disposable stamp worn on the skin that will enable brands to develop a “variety of consumer applications” including NFC payments.
“When paired with a smartphone, tablet or NFC reader, the WiSP platform enables a variety of consumer applications such as cashless payments, hotel room access, event registration, interactive experience at amusement parks, sporting and music events and VIP experiences,” PCH says. “The WiSP platform can also be used in clinical environments to transmit important patient information and streamline procedure flow.
“The stamp leverages NFC technology to enable a variety of interactions between brand and wearer. By combining cloud analytics with the WiSP platform, brands can deepen their understanding of consumer behaviour. PCH will work with third party brands to customize the technology and develop new consumer applications.”
“Our partnership with MC10 opens the door for other brands to develop consumer applications using this unique wearable platform,” says Liam Casey, founder and CEO of PCH. “This stamp is highly customisable, allowing brands to create personalised and engaging experiences that reinforce customer loyalty.”
