This paper documents MultiKit: a toolkit that supports the development of sophisticated user-interfaces for applications using Near Field Communication (NFC). The usage of the toolkit is exemplified using three implemented prototypes, each with significant differences. These differences highlight the complexities involved in producing such NFC applications, and the benefits of a toolkit that can adapt to varying interface types. As the toolkit is tailored to NFC technology, NFC-specific features are explored. These include switching between dynamic (e.g. projection) and static interfaces (e.g. posters), and interface generation from NFC tag descriptions.
