Philips and Visa showcase contactless payment in Vegas

Philips and Visa International showcase the potential of contactless payment and

connectivity at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Visa shows the 3D Secure application, which is linked to ordering music using Philips' Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The practical example is not ordering coca cola from a vending machine but ordering music, promoted on a smart poster (with an embedded micro-chip).
