The application of interactive technology is increasingly inseparable from smartphones, so many times we have to use our phones to interact, such as in NFC-based interaction. We proposed a body-centric interaction design space that captures the near-field interactions between the human body and NFC-tagged objects. The passive extenders worn on the body extend the operating range of the NFC reader/writer of a smartphone to the reach of the wearer’s hand, arm, or foot. Our implementation demonstrates the proposed applications’ technical feasibility.
