1. A wireless communication system including a storage apparatus and a computing device, the storage apparatus comprising:
a connector through which the storage apparatus communicates with an electronic apparatus and receives power from the electronic apparatus;
a wireless antenna through which the storage apparatus communicates with the computing device;
a nonvolatile first memory having stored therein visual or audio content to be output through the electronic apparatus when the connector is electrically coupled to the electronic apparatus, each item of the visual or audio content being associated with a content ID;
a communication controller that is powered from an induction current generated when a wireless signal is received through the wireless antenna, the communication controller including a second memory in which the communication controller stores a content ID transmitted from the computing device via the wireless signal; and
a controller that is powered using the power supplied from the electronic apparatus through the connector when the connector is electrically coupled to the electronic apparatus, wherein the controller is configured to retrieve the visual or audio content from the first memory based on the content ID transmitted from the computing device and transmits the retrieved visual or audio content to the electronic apparatus through the connector for playback by the electronic apparatus,
wherein the computing device comprises an image capturing unit and is configured to extract a set of feature values from data of an image captured by the image capturing unit and transmit the wireless signal containing the content ID to the storage apparatus, the content ID being determined based on the extracted set of feature values and geographical or temporal information relating to the computing device.
