Playing JavaCards

With this week's news
that the UK London police force will deploy 80,000 smart cards with
JavaCard for its building and system access, its good to see that
there's a great new way to start working with the technology:

The PlaySIM project is an
open source software and hardware
project that is truly a playground for a variety of scenarios for JavaCard. A JavaCard is nothing without
the environment to which it connects, whether that be through a magnetic
reader, near
field communication bridge, or if you remember the people counting
sensors deployed at JavaOne 2008, in a SunSPOT.
