Plastc wants to make paying easier, taking all of your credit cards, loyalty cards, and more, and putting them in one place. Much like Coin, Plastc takes the form of a credit card that you can load all of your other cards onto. Coming next year, the card has an e-ink touchscreen on one side that lets you choose your card and enter the secure PIN protecting Plastc.
Plastic supports a variety of payment methods. In addition to being able to swipe the card, Plastc also supports Chip and PIN, barcode, and contactless payments through NFC. It also features Bluetooth LE to connect to your smartphone. Cards are loaded onto Plastc through a smartphone app.
In addition to loading cards onto Plastc, the smartphone is also a security device for the card. If you leave your card behind, the app will give you a proximity alert. If you should leave your Plastc behind, the card will eventually wipe all of the data, displaying the customer service number. When you get your hands back on the card, or get a replacement, simply sync it with the phone app to restore your data.
Through the app, you can see snapshots of your balance available on various cards. Plastc is charged wirelessly thorough a charging stand, and is supposed to hold a charge for a month. It will hold up to twenty cards, including credit and debit card, loyalty programs, and gift cards.
Plastc is scheduled to start shipping Summer 2015, and you can pre-order it right now for $155.
