Hello All,

I'm thinking of getting a Galaxy Nexus phone from Sprint when it becomes available. This phone has an NFC chip in it. What I'd like to do is put a NFC chip on my desktop. Once my phone comes into range of my desktop it will unlock it. Is this possible? Haven't found anything about this on Google.

Open your door locks with NFC

Snubs detailed a way to do it with Bluetooth in a recent hak5 episode. Not sure about NFC though - I can't see why not as they're very similar technologies.

You can do it, just gotta make sure your desktop NFC receiver works. The RFC stuff is already included in the Android sdk, it's just not been widespread enough for most of us developers to mess with it much, so howto resources might be scarce online. Other than that it's a good idea.
