    So I apparently am on some email list and I just got this email
    -----------------------------------------
    "Hello ,
    www.amiiqo.com

    If you have question or need details, you are welcome to ask. We hope the site
    answer most questions. As you will probably notice, we have the ability to
    play Amiibo not even released to the public yet!

    Samples are available on request for press sites!

    --
    Best regards,
    Amiiqo"
    ----------------------------
    Let the craze begin???

    Even though, it could be really nice. Fuckers scalpers can go screw themselves now.

    Did you even read the link you posted?

    The guy doing a bachelor thesis on this said it is *NOT* possible with Android, unless *MAYBE* :
    1. You have a very specific Android device (so not any one will just work)
    2. You have rooted the device, installed a new KERNEL on it with support for this specific NFC chipset
    3. All of this is speculation, nobody has ever tried it or know if it will work for sure; It sounds all like alot of effort for so little bang

    I don't see anyone doing that just to mimic Amiibos when there are things like this amiiqo (if it is real).

    Does anyone know how much this will cost ?

    I've heard somewhere about potentially injecting homebrews and hacked stuff through amiibo

    TSU...no.1 in tha hood
    Neat, I am very interested in being a early adopter of this product !!

    Looks like it works with amiibo, skylanders, infinity, etc.

    I am wondering can you just digitally inject the data...or do you copy from the "Toys"

    Do continue to post more information as it becomes available ^_^"

    You don't need special software to clone amiibos, I have not been able to do it with a smart phone but was able to do it with a nfc r/w card hooked up to a raspi

    No you cannot. Only a nexus 5 can.. Quote on reddit
    "As I'm currently writing my bachelor thesis "NFC-based platforms in gaming" for the University of applied sciences Hagenberg (Austria), the corresponding software project is all about amiibos. My first plan was to create an app in order to emulate amiibos. But as this is NOT possible (Android's host card emulation only works for ISO14443-4 A/B nfc tags (Amiibos are ISO14443-2 A) and for nfc tags with a ISO7816-4 card structure. (this "Application Protocol Data Unit" is not used by the amiibos' nfc tags) But it might possibly work on a Nexus5 with cyanogenmod 9.0+ though. (as this device uses a special nfc chip and cyanogenmod does not require the APDU data structure)) "
