University adds RFID tags to mobile phones

"Slippery Rock decided to implement the NFC technology after focus groups found students were more likely to carry their mobile phone than any money.

'It is easy technology,' said Barry Welsch, Heartland's manager of IT. 'The tag always stays in the consumer's hand - in this case, it's a phone.'

The system is expected to work across the campus, which is approximately 2.4 square kilometres in size."
