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
field communication bridge, or if you remember the people counting
sensors deployed at JavaOne 2008, in a SunSPOT.
