Wocket™ is a next generation smart wallet designed to replace all the cards in your wallet, with no smart phone required. The Wocket works anywhere credit cards are accepted and only works with your biometric stamp of approval.
Credit, debit, ATM, loyalty, gift, ID, membership, insurance, ticket, emergency, medical, business, contacts, coupon, and virtually any card can be protected on Wocket™. More than 10,000 cards, records, coupons, etc. and 100 voice commands can also be stored on Wocket™.
NXT-ID is currently ready to launch its marketing campaign for Wocket™ with a series of CNBC ads airing during prime-time hours commencing the week of May 12th. Additionally the company is holding a press conference and marketing event for media and shareholders May 28th at the Plaza Hotel in New York.
