A Python module to read/write NFC tags or communicate with another NFC device.

NFC is a short-range wireless technology, operating only within a few centimeters. If two NFC-enabled devices are brought close together, literally touched, NFC allows for context sensitive actions; a digital photo camera may automatically transfer the current image to a photo frame without further user interaction. NFC tags can be used to store data such as a Wi-Fi network configuration for provisioning new wireless clients or to 'tag' physical objects. Tags do not require batteries as power comes wireless from the reader.
