One NFC Ring to Rule Them All
NFC Ring by John McLear
I really hope this is successful, looks like a very practical solution to smartphone security for average people IMHO.
iPhone 4S and newer, and most Blackberry's (with correct settings for MicroSD card) have good device security if locked with strong password, but entering strong password on touchscreens is a major PITA!
I am thinking this would provide a way to use a very strong password, without having to manually enter it all the time, so if your smartphone was lost/stolen, your data would be secure.
