The NFC badge will work on any Surface Hub!

NOTE: When you’re in a Storm, each user in the room can walk up to the Surface Hub and tap their own NFC card to log-in to that storm and their avatar will show up at the bottom.
Users can then tap the pen on their avatar to have all ideas, comments and votes attributed to them.
