Summary:

Wafer is the futuristic NFC Tag which is still at a fund raising stage.Wafer uses NFC to communicate with Smartphones and performs functions assigned to it.

NFC (Near Field Communication)  has been the new way of sharing things between two or more NFC enabled devices.  NFC is considered as the future of connecting and sharing files as it consumes less battery than any other connecting function on your phone, lesser than Bluetooth too.
