Bluetooth Wallet Cries Out When Credit Cards Fall Out
An effective way to keep your plastic safe and protect against identity theft.
Losing your credit card after it falls out of your pocket can normally only be prevented by a good citizen noticing it happen. In the event there's no one around to help you out, a new piece of technology could stand in for the human element.
Ping is an aluminum credit card case that links to your phone and alerts you in case of loss. The company is also targeting those worried about identity theft, especially as lost or stolen wallets are the number one cause.
The case connects to your iPhone or Android device with Bluetooth 4.0 and makes a sound when a card is removed from or not returned to the wallet. It's also capable of emitting a sound through the use of a phone app in case you lose it – effective up to 100 feet.
