I read this and got pleased by the idea that the phone could be unlocked with NFC: just showing a tag for the phone would unlock it.

Of course entering a relatively short lock code can be easier than finding the tag, if the tag is kept in an unwieldy place. Using a tag, however, would be convenient at least in point where one has to type long and difficult passwords for keychain unlocking or password manager.

it would be awesome to unlock the jolla with a NFC Ring:

Does anyone know if this is possible with the built-in NFC chip? I'm thinking rfid glass transponder implant in the hand :)

Yes, great feature. Andorid implemented it with 5.0 and it is called SmartLock:
