Coin: Your electronic credit card

Coin, the electronic credit card

Sometimes our wallets get bulkier not because it has a lot of money, but because it has a lot of credit cards. There has to be a more efficient way to organize your credit cards, and thankfully, there is.

Coin is as small and thin as a credit card, but this device can hold other credit cards’ information. You can swap cards and even store gift cards and loyalty cards by swiping and pressing its single button. Then, simply swipe the Coin into the regular credit-card reader upon payment, just like your basic plastic. It can also be used in an ATM to withdraw money and pay bills. Finally, you can simply leave your other cards at home, secured in a heavy-duty safe if needed. (However, Coin recommends to bring a backup card when you travel.)

This gadget uses low-power Bluetooth to connect to an iOS app that manages all your card details and sync them back to the device. The mobile app also serves as a remote to automatically deactivate the Coin in case it is stolen. A single Coin can hold up to eight different cards.

The company now accepts pre-orders for this unique device with an introductory price of $55 (shipping included). Shipping is expected this summer.
