I have been reading about NFC and was wondering If it was possible to make a NFC scanner antenna to read NFC signals from a further distance. I do understand that the N in NFC stands for Near that's why I'm asking if its possible.
I have read a few articles and this one seems the best. It is a study around capturing NFC data and they have also made a YouTube video about this. I intend to do something similar but they don't describe the hardware to well.
If someone knows what I need or a better solution please let me know. As in this article they want it to be relatively cheap and small and this is what I want to. I would appreciate if you include the scanner and antenna details if you recommend equipment.
