  We have already talked about FeLiCa cards in the past and how they are fast changing the way things work in Japan. Lets have a quick overview of Felica before proceeding to why its in the news now.
What is Felica?

FeliCa is Sony's contactless IC card technology. Providing easy access to multiple services through a single card, as well as exceptionally secure, high speed processing, FeliCa cards are increasingly being used for a variety of applications. FeliCa technology can also be used in conjunction with mobile devices to bring mobile tools that can be your cash, ticket, credit card, membership ID and much more.

The multi-application capability of Felica makes it possible to apply a single card to a variety of requirements such as employee identification, access control as well as recording of clock-in / out times. When cash card functions are added, the same card can be used to make payment at shops and cafetarias (in-house). The best part about having this card in your cell phone or anywhere else is that, it needs no battery and also operates without contact. Simply wave it in front of the reader / writer and it gets power from low electro magnetic waves from them. Procseeing speed is extremely fast at 0.1 seconds and data transfer takes place at the speed of 212 kbps. Of course the best part is that the same card can be used for a variety of purposes as per the above examples.

Well as you already know by now, its a pretty handy technology. The best part being that since it can fit into a cell phone, you need not carry it around seperately. Coming to Nagasaki, its a Japanese city which is like all cities but even more so in the case of Japan, strapped for space. Public transport is the preferred transportation for most people since it is impossible to park cars. To make things even more convenient buses are now equipped with Felica reading consoles. Simply wave your phone in front of it and you are charged for the ticket. The buses are also carrying the coin operated machines for people who may not have Felica cards. However Japanese authorities say that around 65% of the consumers are utilising the Felica cards since they are so much more convenient. Plans are afoot to get toll booths and other public conveniences to accept payment by this method.
