I carry so many cards around when I am travelling.
If this https://www.plastc.com/card is for real and it actually works, I am definitely ordering.
It reminds me of this https://onlycoin.com/
I need this!
My wallet is so stacked it looks ridiculous.
What I don’t get is how the chip and the magnetic stripe would get reconfigured and reprogrammed.
I am no hardware engineer, but I would imagine that this is not a trivial task to accomplish.
even if you don’t have that many cards to begin with, it would be GREAT for travel so you can keep the originals as a backup
im sure everyone here has felt the pain of having cards fail while in a different country
seriously, id get it for just that reason alone
Exactly what I thought of.
Any of these out yet or should I add them to my list of cool 2019 gadgets?
One of the best explainer videos I’ve ever seen.
Doubt this is for real. It’s impossible to get so many tech into that tiny 1-2mm thick card
I wonder how long the battery will be.
It can be a fucking catastrophic situation if you have no power left, so no cards to use at all.
Unless that with this device you have now plenty of space in your wallet to carry the power charger ^^
Anyway, if that’s real that’s pretty amazing !
It’s covered by many reputable sources – https://www.plastc.com/press
I don’t doubt that the tech is there at all. 1-2 mm is macroscopic by any measure!
Realise that the computer you’re using has a CPU that is constructed of likely around 2 billion transistors that are only 10’s of nanometres in overall size – only several times larger than ribosomes that produce proteins in our body.
By contrast, 1-2 mm card being able to contain some transactional data is pretty primitive.
