As the header states, Plastc is a debit/credit card that can hold all of your different card information whether it be a debit card, credit card(s), gift cards, loyalty cards, or membership cards. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards can be saved, but unfortunately, Discover cards cannot. They may have not wanted to jump on board with this cool idea.
Plastc uses an e-ink touchscreen display to swipe through the card information (up to 20 cards) that have been stored in Plastc. More awesome features that the card has is that it can be used everywhere. It has a magnetic strip and a bar code, which will show up on the display. A PIN is on the card, which “acts as the first line of security,” and proximity alerts that tells you when you’re are away from the card. Another part of the security feature is that remote security will wipe the card automatically if your card is lost or stolen. If you get it back, simply re-sync Plastc and all the card information will return. Your picture along with signature will show up on Plastc for verification so there’s no need to take out your drivers licence.
Plastc works with the Plastc companion application so you’ll be able to add new cards or change them out at any time. Even your spending shows up too. NFC is included for those of you who use tap to pay like I do. Someone has to keep it alive right? Anyway, a feature that I thought was really awesome is the fact that the card is rechargeable. How? QI charging. Just place the card on your QI charger and let it charge. The battery life will get you a good month (30 days) off one full charge.
Pre-orders are out at the moment and for the price of $155 (USD). Shipping will start summer of 2015, so not much longer to wait. This is something that I’d definitely use any time I go out and make purchase or to just show it off around others. Would you consider buying one despite the pre-order price?
