Coin: a step closer to getting rid of my wallet

Coin: a step closer to getting rid of my wallet | Gadgets I lust for |

"Coin is a connected device that can hold and behave like the cards you already carry. Coin works with your debit cards, credit cards, gift cards, loyalty cards and membership cards. Instead of carrying several cards you carry one Coin. Multiple accounts and information all in one place."

Via Jim Lerman
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

A VC friend was telling me yesterday: "Finance is where the next big innovations will come from" - and then this. 

This looks like genius simple. Pre-ordered one just now. 

My dream would be to get rid of my wallet and my keys and be able to do everything with just my phone.

We're getting closer.

This looks really interesting, but riases some questions - will retailers accept it with no sidniture strip? Can the waiter change which card is being used after you hand it over? What is the security like on both loading the cards onto the Coin and storing them within Coin?


Be really good if they can get it released and it is secure enough - ditch the thick purse!
