A Card that Does it All

NFC Forum is currently advocating the use of contactless credit cards (Visa, MC), andCreditcard_1 mobile phones (Nokia and Motorola) embedded with smart chips that make it easy for consumers to spend their hard earned money with a simple wave at tap-n-go terminal, so a concept like this one from Plusminus may not be so far-fetched. Multifunctional Credit Cards will be able to combine a mobile phone, credit cards, and keys into one credit card sized device. Dima Komissarov plans to incorporate other great features to this all-in-one gadget such as video phone, GPS sytem, remote control, and even provide access to a remote computer. The device will require a fingerprint authorization for safety reasons, if the card needs to be used for payment or as a key.
