Near Field Communication (NFC) enables fast interactive mobile services as it allows two mobile devices to quickly and securely exchange information when they are within touching range. However, NFC-enabled phones are virtually absent on the market today, which impedes the break-through of these useful services. This paper presents the Mobile Touch Technology, which utilizes the mobile phone's microphone plus its connectivity capabilities to effectively emulate NFC with mobile phones that are already widely available on the market. ©2009 IEEE.
