Plastc is a forthcoming card-sized electronic payment device designed to replace traditional credit cards. It’s thin enough to fit in a wallet and has a touchscreen E Ink screen that displays a user’s image, signature, and all of the relevant information for different cards. A wireless payment component, meanwhile, sends information about transactions completed with the card to a connected smartphone. The card also has the potential to replace even more than just credit cards.
In conjunction with the Plastc Wallet app, the Plastc Card can store credit, debit, gift, loyalty, membership, and even key cards on a single device. Each Plastc Card is equipped with a secure PIN lock, proximity alerts, and a unique ‘Return Me’ mode, making it more secure than both traditional credit cards and other payment technologies.
The company has made the card available for pre-order and expects to begin shipping in Summer 2015.
