Mobile payments provider Blaze Mobile has announced a new patent pending sticker that supports two-way communication between the sticker and the mobile phone it is attached to.

This sticker can be placed directly on a mobile phone and it can be used to easily store and select from multiple payment options, like credit, gift and debit cards.

In addition Blaze’s sticker could be used for a large number of options beyond mobile payments including remote access to buildings, cars or health care data, and increased data security because of the ability to remotely deactivate lost or stolen stickers.

The interesting point is that before rollout of NFC phones this sticker can mimics the behavior of NFC embedded inside a mobile phone and can increases the number of potential NFC devices.
