NFC stickers have been placed underneath tables across the restaurant. After downloading the McParty Run app, users can hold their NFC-equipped Android smartphones over the table to play the restaurant's racing game.

Joji Jacob, chief creative officer at DDB Group Singapore, told NFC World: "We programmed NFC sticker tags to act like parts of a racetrack, much like Scalextric tracks. We used a variety of generic brands for the NFC tags.

"Then we stuck these sticker tags on the underside of our restaurant tables so that they are invisible. When kids hovered their smartphones over the ordinary looking tables, the tables magically turned into McDonaldLand and their mobiles become fun little go-karts.

"Kids can zip around tables to collect burgers, harvest apple pies and fight baddies like Hamburglar and Captain Crook. All to help Ronald organise a party for the folks of McDonaldLand."

"Feedback from retailers that a lack of a common standard for managing loyalty cards, coupons and vouchers in a mobile wallet is a barrier to the development of these services has led the GSMA to take the initiative in this field," the association adds.

"Our aim is to have an open source specification that is implemented across the industry and to that end is seeking feedback from players in this field — particularly retailers, loyalty and couponing scheme operators and third party developers or suppliers of related hardware and software."
