RFID is Back!
New York Comic Con will be usisng RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Badges again in 2014. These Badges will be individual and personalized with your NYCC-ID. This means each NYCC-ID Badge contains a unique microchip that is unique to only your Badge. This little chip is being integrated to make your NYCC experience better, smoother, easier, safer and more fun! This little chip also ensures pesky counterfeiters can’t sell you a crappy, wannabe NYCC Badge. If you’re caught with a counterfeit Badge you’ll be asked to leave NYCC 2014 immediately. It sounds harsh, but we’re cracking down on the crooks to make your experience 100x cooler!

How To Use Your NYCC-ID Badge
There’s one last thing you should know about your NYCC-ID Badge. You’re going to have to tap your Badge with a member of the NYCC-ID Patrol (they’re those crew members you will see holding scanners at all the entrances and exits at the show). When you enter the building, you MUST tap your NYCC-ID Badge. When you exit the building, you MUST tap it again on your way out. You can practice tapping your NYCC-ID Badge before you get to NYCC. When your cat walks by, tap it. When your little brother walks by, tap him. Make sure you teach your friends how to tap their NYCC-ID Badges too, so they’ll be ready to go when they get to NYCC!
