We have got smart cars, smartphones, and smart homes – is there anything else out there that can end up as “smart”? Yes, the humble wallet for them guys. We are referring to the Smart Wallet, which is now a Kickstarter project that has amassed quite a number of backers. The Smart Wallet might look like a fashionable leather wallet, but it has been specially designed to feature integrated Bluetooth BLE as well as a built-in GPS tracker, not to mention carry a 1,000mAh battery that allows one to juice thirsty devices on the move.
There will be a couple of such wallets, with the Standard SmartWallet arriving with a Bluetooth LE locator and a multi-function button. As for the Premium SmartWallet, this particular model will feature an integrated backup battery, a USB sync cable, an iPhone Lightning and Micro-USB option, a Bluetooth LE locator and of course, the multi-function button. The entire slew of hardware has been specially built right into the wallet’s clip, ensuring it has that trendy and hip look.
Never misplace your wallet again, as all you need to do is to tap your phone using the StreetSmart Smart Wallet app, and it ought to track down your moneybag – as long as it remains within a 50 to 150 foot radius, of course .
