Dimple accessory allows you to add four buttons to your NFC-enabled Android device

Posted In NEWS - By DailyNews on Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 With No Comments »

Dimple is an upcoming accessory that caught our eye. It’s a sticker that’s about half a millimeter thick that you stick onto almost any NFC-enabled Android device to add four customizable buttons to your device. Each button is individually programmable to do almost any task, whether it’s to turn on the flashlight (which sounds incredibly useful) to calling a certain phone number.

The Dimple will be getting its own IndieGogo campaign on May 6th, where you can score one of these little accessories for only $15. Later, they’ll be $29 at retail, which seems a bit high. The device will launch within 60 days of the end of the campaign, so around August of this year. They already have 250 prototypes made, as well has having finished and posted the Android app to use them.

The creators claim that the buttons will withstand 2 million clicks and 100,000 reprograms before going out on you, meaning they’ll last a long time. And they’ll work on any Android device that has NFC except for the HTC One M7 and M8, along with other devices that are made of metal. What do you guys think of this accessory? Would you actually use it, or is it too much of an eyesore? I’m personally very interested in it. Tell us what you think in the comments!
