Who Says NFC Was Only Built for Making Payments? How About Unlocking Doors Too.

With all of this Google Wallet and Nexus S talk this week, we wanted to point out that NFC can do more than just make and receive payments.  In fact, after watching the video above that demonstrates how Near Field Communication can also be used to do things like unlock your house, we are more excited than ever for companies to start widely adopting it.  Now, the phone in the video is clearly an iPhone, but just imagine it as your Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.

What other uses can we get out of NFC?  I’m thinking cars, right?  We already have keyless entry and start-ups, why not NFC too?  Can you imagine how lovely life would be if you didn’t have to carry around 3 different sets of keys all of the time?
