I have quite a few Digital Logic products, and they all work great. This little guy is no different: it’s Wrigley’s packet-sized but it packs the punch of an ACR122U. Check it out:
That there with the very thin USB cable I soldered out of an old USB mouse tail is my new travel PC/SC reader.
And if you’re worried about drivers, worry no more: this guy is compatible with the stock Windows driver or open-source libccid driver under Linux: no need to install anything, it works right out of the box.
Note that the DL533R is the PC/SC version of the reader. If you need the libNFC version, choose the DL533N. This nomenclature applies across the range of non-uFR Digital Logic products (uFR being their proprietary API that’s neither PC/SC nor libNFC). I assume the performances are identical for the -N version, because that holds true with my -R and -N XL readers. But in fairness I haven’t tried.
€39.90 - well worth the money if you need small, powerful and no-fuss.
Yeah well, for its size, it has the exact same range as the flexNT.
It does more than a flexNT though, and probably needs more power. I suppose that explains it.
Actually it wouldn’t work for me. I don’t know where you wear your implants, but there’s no way I could present most of mine to a reader hanging vertically off a laptop’s USB port. That’s why I never got one - price aside.
I purchased this device. Ordered on May 13th, and it arrived at my house (USA) on May 23rd. I did purchase the express shipping.
@anon3825968, could you help me out? Can’t seem to get it to work. I plan on using it similar to the kbr1, to log into my windows computer (if that’s even possible).
I found their DL533R Repo. I made the change in Regedit, but still doesn’t seem to read.
(Not sure if I’m supposed to create a new thread under ‘support’ or if it’s ok to post here, sorry if I’m not supposed to).
Yes, I realized that after I posted it. Windows automatically installed the driver. I’m just a little confused on what this device is supposed to do I guess. I figured it would be like a plug-and-play thing, but guess not. Not sure what software I need to use it as a keyboard.
I assumed Windows worked straightaway but this doesn’t seem to always be the case. In particular, from what I can tell, this permission problems seems to happen on Windows 8 machines that were upgraded to Windows 10, rather than machines that came with Windows 10 from the start. Sorry about that, I should have checked before making assumptions.
On the other hand, it goes to show that Windows is shit and you should run Linux
The KBR1 is a keyboard wedge (i.e. it’s seen as a HID device, like a keyboard). Totally different beast - kind of a lowest common denominator RFID reader that doesn’t do much of anything interesting but does it everywhere without having to install anything.
The Yubikey 5 NFC is a NFC tag, not a reader.
Hmm well, as least I think your smartcard service is running okay, else you would have had a SCardEstablishContext error.
Do you see the menu in the SmartCardDemo utility? Cuz if you do, it works
Try another PC/SC utility, like Rohos (which is what you want to use to log into Windows with an implant anyway) or the Yubikey Manager.
EDIT: Also, I suggest getting an ACR122U. They’re cheap, and kind of the gold standard for PC smartcard readers, and PC-based implant readers. I don’t think you can be an implantee without owning at least one of those things
