High-Tech Wocket Smart Wallet Revealed As Latest Weapon Against Identity Theft
The Wocket, which stores up to 10,000 credit cards, can only be activated with voice recognition, a PIN or a shape drawn on a touch pad, having it impossible for thieves to crack.


A high-tech wallet that stores up to 10,000 credit cards was touted Wednesday as the latest weapon against identity theft.

NXT-ID unveiled its $149.99 Wocket at a lavish, open-bar press conference at The Plaza hotel.

Slightly smaller than an iPhone, the Wocket is an encryptic, tamper-proof gizmo that can only be activated with voice recognition, a personal identification number or a shape drawn on a touch pad.

If it’s ever stolen, thieves will find it impossible to crack, said Gino Pereira, the CEO of Shelton, Conn.-based NXT-ID.

The device contains a single card for merchants to swipe after owners select a credit card, coupon or gift certificate.

“It’s the smartest wallet you will ever own,” Pereira said. “We think this…

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)

On May 24, 2014 the New York Times published a 2,900 word expose on the Canadian medical marijuana industry, centering on a chocolate factory in Smith Falls, Ontario converted to a climate-controlled marijuana plant now operated by Tweed Marijuana, a publically traded company worth $121 million.

The Canadian government estimates that within the next decade the marijuana business will generate more than $3.1 billion a year in taxable sales.

Wocket Smart Wallet    Is that a Wocket in your pocket, or are you just expecting me to pay for dinner? Like the Coin card consolidator, Wocket is an electronic wallet replacement that stores personal information from all of your credit and debit cards--or any other dynamic stripe card--to trim the fat of carrying multiple bulky plates, provide a single card for making payments with any card, and keep sensitive data locked and safe from all but its authorized user.

"Lock it with Wocket in your pocket." Creators NXT-ID, Inc. call their Wocket an electronic vault. Once users swipe cards into its database during the setup process, the information is encrypted with for exclusive access via fingerprint (on Wocket's touchscreen) or voice command, plus a PIN or programmed pattern. The company asserts that its wallet is 100% safe from RF skimming, and that even if a Wocket is stolen, the data is entirely inaccessible to anyone without its owner's biometric st…

Wocket Wallet: Your Electronic Vault Wallets for us really have to stand out. That doesn’t mean you have to forgo traditional materials and designs, but you should have a uniqueness that says, “I’m not just any wallet; I’m the only one you’ll ever need.” While it’s still too early to test the validity of that claim with the Wocket Smart Wallet, we certainly see potential. Rather than being a smart card — we’ve seen a few of those — it’s a smart wallet that replaces the need to carry around all your different credit cards, reward cards, etc.

The Wocket acts as an electronic vault for all your financial information, and it’s biometrically attached to only one person (you), so if you ever lose it or have it stolen, it will be worthless to anyone else. Looks pretty snazzy, too.

No idea yet on pricing, but here’s a useful FAQ for any remaining questions.
