Google recently unveiled an NFC phone case that can be customized and used to interact with Nexus smartphones.

'My Live Case' lets users create a custom snap case for a Nexus 5X, 6 or 6P phone, which can be personalized with a photo or a special location on Google Maps. After uploading a photo, users are able to apply a range of artistic filters in order to further enhance their custom creation. Cases can be ordered for $35 and are compatible with Android 4.4 devices and above.

With one of these smart NFC phone cases, users also get a live wallpaper that brings the design to life on their phone. The case also allows a user's wallpaper to become a slideshow display for their own Google Photos.
