In June 2019, identity solutions provider Veridos entered into an exclusive joint venture with Prismade Labs GmbH to provide identity credentials that incorporate Prismade printed electronics technology into Veridos ID cards. The identity cards will be digitally marked which enables interaction with smartphones without the prerequisite of a contactless Integrated Circuit (IC) chip, Near-Field Communication (NFC) or Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology through the use of an electronic identification tag. Known as edding code, the invisible ink pattern printed onto product tags can be identified by smartphones. You place the tag on the smartphone and swipe your finger over it to activate your phone’s touchscreen via conductive ink on the tag. With a growing global trend in mobile identity companions to physical documents, this technology could find a place in government-issued citizen credentials in regions with high smartphone penetration.
