Tech Tuesday - security and privacy

Image
Tech Tuesday - Security and PrivacyNew products to protect and secure your information. A digital wallet that stores and encrypts your credit cards plus other info. And a wearable device that uses your heart as a password. AUSTIN - In this Tech Tuesday we are talking security. The Consumer Electronics Show wrapped up Friday in Las Vegas and one of the areas we are seeing tremendous growth is privacy and security.
Two products that got a lot of attention deal exactly with that.



Protecting the way you pay is the goal of Wocket. The smart wallet stores everything you have in your wallet: debit cards, credit cards, loyalty card and more, replacing them with one card. It has a card reader to scan the cards then biometrically protects them. You use your voice or a pin code to unlock Wocket. Pick the card, then swipe a single Wocket card. There is no reason to carry individual cards with you.

The top 10 gadgets from CES 2015 The ATIV One 7 Curved computer is on display at the Samsung booth during the International CES last week in Las Vegas. With 170,000 attendees and more than 3,600 exhibitors at CES 2015, one might overlook a gadget or two. With this disclaimer, here is this year’s list of the Top 10 Gadgets:
1. Volvo Connected Bicycle Helmet Three Swedish companies – Volvo, Ericsson, and POC – jointly developed this bicycling safety warning system, a welcome development given the 50,000 cyclists who are injured or killed each year in the United States. The helmet and vehicle connect and communicate using a smart phone app (Strava) and the cloud. If the vehicle is on a collision course with the bicycle, the system warns the driver, auto-brakes the vehicle and activates an alert light on the helmet. The system combines Ericsson’s communication technology with POC’s experience making protective gear for cyclists and it is now standard in Volvo XC90 models.  Hopeful…

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA—Now that the main Expo hall here at CES is open to the public, it feels like the Big Show has truly begun.

Wocket Smart Wallet Only Uses One Card

Image
Wocket Smart Wallet Only Uses One CardWhile Apply Pay starts to pick up traction, the truth is that the majority of us will still end up keeping our wallets in our pockets.

Why? Well for starters there's the feeling of security knowing that not everything is on your phone, and secondly we're all really stubborn.

The Wocket Wallet accepts your stubbornness and in return offers a smart alternative. It's still a wallet, it's just a smart wallet, and it only has one card.

It has the ability to store up to 10,000 cards whether they're payment cards, in store discount cards or membership cards.

The wallet stores them all and -- at the push of a button -- transfers the card data you want to a smart card. You then pay, pop the card back into the wallet and that's it.
Everything is controlled via a touchscreen E-Ink display letting you see key card information and letting you choose which card you're using.

The wallet is protected using biometric data, your…

Craziest gadgets of CES 2015: Smart belts, smart wallets, Android cookers and more The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas each year is the ideal place to see all of the top products to be launched in the proceeding 12 months or so. TVs, smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, laptops and other everyday entertainment devices are unveiled during the convention and the press conferences by the major companies.

However, there's another side to CES too. Alongside OLED TVs and fitness bands are gadgets that, well, don't really fit into many of the conventional categories. Some of them are Bluetooth enabled. Some have interesting features that you wish you'd thought of. And some are just plain weird.
We've decided to round-up some of the craziest that can be encountered at this year's event, CES 2015. And you'll probably find that there are plenty you'd actually like to own.
