We like things to be simple. Some of our favorite wallets and card holders are made from high quality leather but come in very sleek silhouettes that don’t bulge or become more of a burden than a much needed convenience. The truth is though that we don’t own these wallets and card holders because they usually have 2-3 card slots, about 5 less than what we need given all the cards we keep on us on a regular basis. That’s your license, credit cards, bank debit card, and possibly your loyalty cards as well.
The folks behind Coin have swooped in to solve a real problem. They’ve built a card that’s about the size of a standard credit card but with some enhanced features that allow it to house multiple debit, creditm even gift cards. The bluetooth-connected Coin has a small black and white e-ink display, a single button to swipe through the cards, a two-year battery, and a magnetic stripe that can pretend to be any of the cards you’ve uploaded via the iOS or Android app (via an included compact dongle).
