Programmable credit-card to replace most of your wallet's contents
Chameleon Card is a programmable credit-card and the Pocket Vault is
a programming terminal for it. Feed it your credit-card magstripes and
your loyalty-card bar-codes, seal it with your fingerprint, then, on
demand, it can mimic any of the cards in your wallet. Oh, and it's got
an RFID-mimic built in to replace your swipeless gas-pump card. This
strikes me as simultaneously very cool and very creepy, and at $200,
it seems too pricey to fly.
users of the Pocket Vault will read their old credit cards with the
device, which stores their information internally and backs it up to
an online or local database in case the Pocket Vault is lost or stolen.
Each credit card stored on the Pocket Vault is then represented by an
icon on the device's touch-screen display. The Pocket Vault also prompts
its owners to place their fingerprints on the device's reader pad to
create a biometric profile. from: BoingBoing
