Wireless Magnetic Data Transfer

Wireless Magnetic Data Transfer was a project I did to see whether you could transmit data using magnetic fields. I came up with the idea for’s Infineon 3D contest and was awarded one of their sensor boards for the idea. At the time, I didn’t really know how data was transmitted in real applications, so the design wasn’t really reliable if you wanted to actually send any data. Transmitting data this way also has many other drawbacks that make it impractical, but it’s an interesting concept nonetheless.
