Now, stickers to automate everyday phone functionsJun 14, 7:24 pm
Washington, June 14 (ANI): The Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, which is due to release in US in June, will also hand out a set of five NFC TecTiles stickers, which could be put anywhere and help perform any function on the phone just with a tap on it. NFC (near field communication) is the same tech that allows for tap-and-pay credit card and electronic ticket transactions, Discovery News reported.An NFC-embedded sticker can be put anywhere one likes and, using a corresponding app, set to control anything one wants it to. For example, stick a TecTile on the nightstand and in the evening, when you go to the bed, just tapping the phone on the sticker will change the profile on phone to "night mode" and activate the morning alarm.Stick another one on the car's dash, makes the phone automatically switch to Blue tooth mode for driving and send a text to person's loved one letting them know they are on their way. However, its not yet known if the stickers or the app will be available on phones other than Samsung.TecTiles will be sold five to a pack at 15 dollars on June 21. (ANI)
