Magical Screen Protector Gives iPhone a Virtual Back Button [Kickstarter]

A new Kickstarter project titled ‘Halo Back’ claims to be the first smart iPhone screen protector in the world, that promises to help you handle your device with a single hand by adding a virtual back button to the iPhone (via Gizmodo).

The Halo Back is basically a glass screen protector with a separate capacitive channel that links the bottom of the glass to the top. So when you tap the invisible button in the bottom-left corner of the screen protector, it translates that touch to the top-left corner instead. Additionally, it also serves as a durable glass screen protector.

For Halo Back, we add a circuit layer to traditional glass screen protector. It helps to lead current when you press lower left corner of the screen, so that the back button works.
