I have a night stand dock made of pencils and rubber bands (don't ask). It has an NFC tag attached to it. When I place my Android device in the stand, NFC Task Launcher detects the tag and it auto-launches the Dock Clock app which displays a pretty clock along with the local weather forecast.

I could do similar things with NFC tags under light switch plates by the front door or whatnot, but haven't found a non-geeky reason to do so, yet.
