FujiFilm in a partnership with Smartrac is to launch a photo printing booth with NFC technology in the UK.
The booth will be placed in retail outlets, camera shops, pharmacies and supermarkets and will allow the customers to transfer photos from their NFC-enabled smartphone by waving it to the kiosk.
The phone will connect to the booth and will transfer the images through Bluetooth. When connected, the customer has the option to print montages, photo gift items, standard photos or photo books.
Each kiosk is equipped with Smartrac’s BullsEye NFC technology, which can instantly enable Bluetooth connection with any device.
FujiFilm launched the project in May with 15 kiosks and it hopes to expand to 9,000 by the end of 2012.
