You may have many credit card in your wallet like Visa Debut Card and Pay Pal etc for different accounts or transactions and you may not feel good to carry all of them with you in your wallet all the time when you are going outside from house or what happen when you forget to carry your credit card with you and you are going for shopping? It sounds not good…!!!
But don’t worry after this new Plastc Card can solve your problem because this card can now replace by all your Credit Cards. The new Plastc payment card would potentially takes all these payment systems and shove them into a single credit card-sized entity that supports magnetic card readers, Chip and PIN, NFC, RFID and QR codes. It has a touchscreen E-ink display and connects to the companion iOS and Android Wallet app. It’s like the crowd-sourced Coin card, but with more features already built in.
The contraption holds up to 20 cards that can be switched on the fly but are protected by a system-wide PIN number. The card also uses Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to your phone and sync cards, but also to alert you when you leave the card behind. After a pre-set time period the card erases all stored card data and displays Plastc’s customer service number. Once you retrieve the card, it begins syncing all the wiped data back to the card without having to go through the set up process again.
The card holds a 30 day charge and is recharged via an included wireless charging mat. To extend the battery life a light sensor is built so that when in your dark wallet or purse the display stays off. When pulled out of your wallet or purse, it turns the display on.Plus, in a partnership with Bank of America, CitiBank, American Express, Chase, Charles Schwab, US Bank and Wells Fargo, the card will be able to show your balance right on the display. Need to see if you have enough in your account to buy that new fancy computer, boat or shoes?
One downside is that when the card ships, while it will have the hardware for NFC and Chip and PIN built in, neither will be enabled at launch. Instead there will be a firmware update in late 2015. But you can Pre-order Plastc Card in just $155 but it will shipping to you in next summer 2015.
