There’s a Wocket in Your Pocket
NXT-ID’s new smart wallet holds all the cards.
Wocket is a new smart wallet from NXT-ID scheduled to hit the market in early 2015. NXT-ID has leveraged its background in biometric authentication to create a product that protects your identity without requiring you to change any habits. Carry a wallet, use a credit card at any store, or grab cash from the ATM—Your actual credit cards stay securely at home while Wocket takes care of it all.
Wocket is a device that’s roughly the same size and weight as a traditional leatherfold wallet. The smart wallet is made up of three separate pieces. The main Wocket device has a touchscreen that can be used to select a specific card to use or enter your pin. There’s also a Wocket card that can be used in place of your regular credit cards and a thumb-sized scanner used to load your regular credit cards onto the Wocket.
But what if you lose your Wocket? It’s a scary thought, if all your card data is on just one device. However, there’s no need to worry—your credit cards are all safe at home. Just cancel your Wocket account and start fresh. Your data stays safe and secure behind Wocket’s biometric lock- and tamper-proof chip.
Wocket is easy to carry and offers a comforting level of security, and we can see it fitting the needs of many people. We’re curious to see whether its release sees many folks switching from regular wallet to Wocket.
