Default hardware buttons on phone via NFC

I know a lot of people on this forum are big fans of hardware buttons on device for blind operation while in your pocket (change track, pause, etc.). A product called Dimple is a NFC sticker that you stick to your phone to add customizable hardware buttons.

I think this is pretty sweet! Hopefully they'll be available to buy very soon!

very neat idea, but it means I'll have to take the case off my phone.

Or just put it on the case itself. Unless its metal it won't block the NFC.

Oh nice, but ehh not gonna back this just to get one cheaper or something like that... Who knows what I'll be using once they finally come out with it. Best of luck though, definitely a cool idea, especially for a tablet.
