what is minichip?
Have you ever wanted to be able to prove ownership of your models without going for the sharpie.
Minichip is a tag that can be placed inside a model like a tank or other vehicle.
A standard minichip will hold enough details to store your name, phone number, and email address.
A minichip xl can store much much more.
Warning, some phones will truncate long text. not something i can control :(
Enough to store a simple army list or short story.
How do you use minichip? Simple, any mobile phone that is nfc enabled can read a minichip. Simply pass the back of the mobile over the place with the minichip and the details will show up on the screen.
The following link shows a reasonable list of nfc enabled phones and devices.
What can you get on a MiniChip?
this is an example of the standard minichip
"This tank is property of Adrick James Trotter
Twinlinked lascannon turret
2 lascannon sponsons
or 130 bytes of information
The XL chip hold over 3 times the standard chip
up to 450 bytes.
Coming soon. But to include 1 free upgrade from standard to xl chips for backer pledging for 2 or more standard chips. And add-ons for less.
And backer pledging over $15 can get add-ons at the following prices
$10 per standard minichip with any details you choose.
$15 per xl minichip with any details you choose included.
All tags are locked after being encoded to prevent smart thieves from altering the chips.
Risks and challenges
The only noteworthy challenges for this project is 1 getting funding and 2 getting the hardware.
If the hardware supply is delayed because the project grows to far beyond the scale I am expecting there may be delays.
