NearSpeak, an NFC app powered by Windows Phone 8

Andreas Jakl, founder of Mopius and one of the developers of NearSpeak, demonstrates how this cool NFC app works. The app pushes the boundaries of mobile technology innovation by taking advantage of NFC in combination with voice recognition, Bing Translation, and voice synthesis. Together, these technologies create a unique and compelling use case. The app has great potential for tourism, museums, events, geocaching, and many others.

NearSpeak was the first runner up in the Lumia Geek 8-Week Challenge.
