Paragon ID's technological expertise makes gaming child's play for everyone...


If you want to equip figures and cards in games with additional digital features, or if you want to connect computer game features to real-world objects, then Paragon ID have the answer. By using RFID and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology we can provide the bridge between physical and digital games. From soft toys with ‘chips in their ears’, to intelligent, high-tech playing cards, to secure gaming tokens – you can let your imagination run free.


NFC technology is playing an increasing role in consumer electronics and the mobile gaming market, which was estimated to be worth US$30 billion in 2015, according to Newzoo Research. By linking with Bluetooth devices, smartphones and Wi-Fi networks or gadgets, NFC tags provide real value that consumers instantly recognize. Paragon ID can add a fourth dimension to electronics, games, toys and content sharing, through the customization, upgrades and interaction NFC can provide.

This technology can provide wireless communication between smart NFC devices and NFC-enabled objects. The potential applications are only limited by imagination and creativity. This makes the experience of mobile Internet and other mobile services fast and convenient, and presents new opportunities for toy and games companies and consumers alike.


As an electronics brand, you know that your customers are using an ever-growing array of mobile and static devices both at work and at home. They use them to make life and work easier, to educate, or to provide endless entertainment. The key is connectivity: it’s fun and easy to share photos, videos or games when NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are interconnected – and it’s simply done by tapping NFC touch points together.


Paragon ID is leading the way with this (relatively) new symbiosis of gaming and RFID. As shown by our recent, successful, partnership with toy-giant Hasbro, on their new music game Dropmix, we have the ability to create a seamless, cost-effective solution for your gaming needs, however diverse your requirements may be.
