New York City


Easter Island


Whether at home, work, or on the go, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a part of our daily lives. In an effort to connect people from around the world, we have placed interactive trusted NFC tags at specific coordinates in one of the most crowded areas in the world, and one of the most remote.

Read the press release.

Hack-proof • Unclonable • No app required

Get outside and see the world, prove it to your friends, get connected and Tap Around the World.

Step 1: Go to the coordinates and simply tap your NFC enabled mobile phone on the poster located at the site. (Make sure your NFC feature is turned on.)

Step 2: For each unique tap, HID Global will donate $1 to the Food Bank for New York City or the Easter Island Foundation.
