How to transform Clipper into a wearable

As far as looks go, Clipper is no match for the colorful Fast Passes of yesteryear, but if you have enough patience and geek skills, you can still remedy the situation. A clever life hacker on Hackernoon extracted the brains of the Clipper card and embedded into a bracelet. Blogger Stephen Cognetta got tired of carrying his Clipper card, so he extracted the brains of the Clipper card (the NFC chip) and embedded it into a couple of different styles of bracelets and wearables.

Here’s how:

First, he dissolved his Clipper card in a jar of acetone to extract just the NFC chip.

Then, he checked if the NFC chip is still functional: smart idea, there.

After that, you can embed the chip (and antennae) in almost any thing. The wearable world is your oyster!

Here’s the full post¬†with step-by-step instructions. I’m thinking a Clipper card ring, a la mob boss style, is in order.
