Nintendo files patent for protecting IC tags within toys

Keeping those toys safe

Nintendo has filed a new patent, but it really isn't anything new for fans. The patent aims to protect IC tags within toys that are soft or plush. IC tags in this case refers to the NFC feature that amiibo have. Nintendo has made a giant plush Yoshi amiibo that had to include some sort of special protection for the tag inside, and now the Big N feels like what they've come up with is worthy of ap patent. If you really want to sift through the entire patent, you can do so here.

I'm curious to see the outcome of this.

I really like the concept of Amiibo, so whether this is some sort of new Amiibo property, or something new entirely, I'm curious to see what comes of this.
