News: Flomio blows past its $80K Kickstarter goal

FlomioFlomio surpassed its $80K Kickstarter campaign goal -- with hours to spare -- to bring NFC technology to the Apple world. Powered by many donations big and small from the Miami startup community and others around the world, Flomio will now put the $96,145 raised into producing its product, the FloJack.

FloJack is a pocket-sized NFC (Near Field Communication) reader and writer that brings the power of NFC to the iPad, iPod Touch and the iPhone. Trggered by touch, NFC is a wireless technology that connects your phone to the devices around it in order to trigger new experiences. Until FloJack, it hasn't been available for iPhone, Flomio says.
