NFC Tailgate Cooler

This was a fun project inspired by the art of tailgating. While experimenting with a coding and arduino project, I also had the pleasure of attending an Eagles game the same weekend. While there, I thought it would be great if I could have a cooler that several friends and I could share but others would not have access to. I was able to create a cooler that utilized an NFC chip scanner paired with a servo motor mounted on the inside to act as a lock. The cooler also came with specialized coozi’s that had NFC chips embedded inside, so only the select coozi holders could unlock the cooler.
