Ford Patents Smartphone Key Fob Technology

Ford is making waves with innovation as it dives into the world of technology. Ford has patented a phone case that lets you turn your smartphone into a key fob. The case would allow your smartphone to lock, unlock, and open the trunk, and could even unlock the car automatically when you get close to it. While the key fob case would function much in the same way as a normal key fob, it would be one less device you have to keep track of and carry, and it’s much easier to keep track of your smartphone, and find it again if you lose it, than a set of keys.
