A Sticker That Adds Four Customizable Buttons To Your Android Device

Company Dimple has a solution to the lack of a physical home button on Android Devices. They have created a sticker that has a set of four buttons that can be customized to your desire.

One of the best aspects of the product is that it does not require the use to hack or jailbreak their device. It utilizes NFC by sticking to any surface on your Android smartphone or tablet without using Bluetooth, WiFi, or the battery.

Each of the four buttons has a different NFC ID so that the accompanying app from Dimple can tell the difference between each one when they are pressed.

It should be noted that smartphones with metal cases like the HTC One unfortunately will not work with the product from Dimple.

Dimple will actually be launching an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on May 6—so you can’t buy it just yet. But if the campaign is successful, the Dimple’s creators are optimistic it will be available as early as August of this year.
