It goes without saying that you can automate things around your home with NFC tags. The folks at PhoneHome project have NFC tags that are easy to program and let you automate certain tasks in your home. You just have to scan the tag to the back of your phone, and you are set.
What can you do with these tags? You can launch apps, send text messages, take a picture, control your PC, unlock your phone, connect to WiFi, and a whole lot more. You can use these tags on your desk, car, wireless speakers, and even pets. Like what you see? You can support this project on Kickstarter.
