Touch-screen phones are excellent, however in some cases there is simply no replacement for an excellent old hardware solution. Having the ability to have a button that’s consistently readily available, and always does the same point is not something that must be overlooked, and that’s why there are greater than a couple of Kickstarter tasks intending to make a little even more physicality to our touch-based world.


One such project is the Cliq, a situation that assures to provide your phone superpowers.

The area is a simple one at its core. Thinking you’ve acquired a phone with NFC and it’s one of the tools that there is a Cliq case for, you merely place your phone and download the called for application.

As soon as that’s all done you’re free to activity the Cliq’s three NFC buttons to do all kinds of points from calling a contact to controlling media playback.

The tools assisted currently are: Samsung’s Galaxy S4, S5 and the ageing S3, the Motorola Moto X, LG’s G2 and the Nexus 5. There’s the opportunity of various other instances being provided for other phones at a later date, however those are the ones that Cliq will certainly sustain at launch, ought to it actually obtain funded.


Speaking of funding, you’ll require $ 25 to obtain in on the ground floor, and with 26 days to go the project has virtually managed to accumulate $ 15,000 in pledges. With a total amount of $ 40,000, there’s still a method to go, at the time of creating. We wouldn’t be startled to see it reach that goal, but with Kickstarter projects typically trailing off after the first married couple of weeks, it’ll require to obtain its skates on.

If you do make a decision that the Cliq is for you, then you could select from five colors and the product is expected to deliver in August. As tends to be the case, and assuming you’ll excuse that abysmal word play here, you’ll have to wait for your amazing device if you do make a decision to offer the people behind Cliq your hard-earned cash.


Oh, and no, there’s no iPhone model on account of the absence of an NFC chip. Not to worry however, with rumors of an iPhone 6 possessing such a piece of hardware inside, the Cliq may not be out of grab too long.
