How Does the iPads Touchscreen Recognize These Trading Cards?

Not since the inclusion of stale bubble gum has there been an innovation in trading cards as awesome as what these Nuko cards are capable of. They look, feel, and flex just like regular cards, but they can be recognized by touchscreens when simply pressed against the display.The secret is a printing technique called Touchcode that uses special capacitive inks which are apparently still compatible with existing printer hardware. The ink is printed in a specific pattern on one end of the card thats detected by the touchscreen as multiple simultaneous finger presses. And the arrangement of this pattern can be used to transmit data like a website URL. The capacitive ink is also printed on the other end of the card where its held, connecting it to the unique pattern so the whole thing basically serves as an extension of your fingers.
