Dimple will let you tape a strip of four buttons to your device and program them through NFC

One of the best parts about Dimple is that if you like it and want to have additional buttons, you can stick as many of them as you wish on your device, as long as you don't run out of space. The adhesive on Dimple's back-side should last long enough, although its makers warn that multiple peelings and tapings will eventually exhaust its life-bar.
At launch, the Dimple will cost $27 apiece, and it will be sold in multiple colors. Unfortunately, it won't be compatible with metal-built devices such as the HTC One and One (M8), because NFC doesn't pair nice with this type of material. We'll leave it to the awesomely produced video trailer to show you how Dimple will play out when it becomes reality.

what about battery life? Does it need to charge?

No.. It's more like a RF tag, or imagine analog audio tape.. It holds information that can be read.. Not really any significant amount of power needed. It's more like a field that is used to receive data..
