The Best Tech Gifts of 2015:
The Wocket Smart Wallet is one of the best new tech gadgets coming out this year and is a great gift idea for men.
It's designed to replace your entire wallet with one single card. Then it uses some pretty cool high tech security features to keep your information protected at all times.
Here's how it works: You can load the information from up to 10,000 cards (you don't have that many do you?) into one WocketCard that you carry with you inside the wallet. When it's time to pay for something, you use a display screen on the wallet to choose which of your credit cards or bank cards you want to select. Then simply swipe the WocketCard as if it's your normal card, it'll load the necessary data from its memory and complete the transaction.
It works anywhere you'd use a debit or credit card. Talk about slimming down your wallet!
This is the perfect tech gift idea for somebody that carries a lot of cards around and tends to have a bulging wallet.
Don't worry about security either, Wocket protects all of your information with biometric voicematch security, and a PIN. It also encrypts all of your card data when storing it.
Not impressed yet? Here are some additional features:
One feature that hasn't received as much discussion as may be deserved is the fingerprint biometric feature. That's the kind of tech we like to discuss at Technology Today and we'll do that this Wednesday at 6pm EST.
Security is an ever growing concern and the 4-digit pass code is often more of an annoyance than a deterrent. Perhaps a finger tap approach, which we are used to anyway from opening apps, will do better?
Some say this is a slippery slope that once we are accustomed to using our fingers, retina scanners, voice print and other more intrusive biometric approaches will become the norm.
We'll discuss the pros and cons and take a deeper look at the biometric teck. Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, is a recognized expert in the technology space having built start-ups across the world.
