Wocket Smart Wallet Debuts at 2015 CES
NXT-ID Inc, a Connecticut-based biometric authentication company that focuses on the mobile commerce market, is officially launching its new Wocket smart wallet at this year’s International CES in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Wocket already had a preview with select media at Digital Experience on January 5.
This next generation smart wallet leads the company’s innovative MobileBio suite of biometric solutions that protect consumers’ mobile platform.
Wocket, the world’s first smart wallet, secures consumers’ identities and replaces all the cards in their wallet, without the need for a smartphone or internet connection.
This standalone device can store up to 10,000 cards, tickets, coupons, contacts and other data. It only works with the owner’s biometric (voice) stamp of approval for an added layer of security.
Wocket protects personal information by encrypting and storing it on its tamper-proof chip. Data remains on the device and is not transmitted even if users choose to use a smartphone app to configure their Wocket or install firmware updates.
“Most consumers are familiar with the anxiety of losing a wallet filled with their cards, coupons and personal information. People connect with all the negative implications of this information being in the wrong hands,” said Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID.
“With Wocket, consumers finally have a convenient, attractive and secure modern solution to replace their wallet entirely, and never again need to endure the risks of carrying a traditional wallet,” he added.
NXT-ID Inc will also unveil new colors, materials, production, and prototype accessory designs for Wocket during the four-day event.
