    Something like this probably isn't too far from being reality.

    So I'm taking a close look at this.

    What if it gets stolen? Dude gets all your cards in one go?

    This looks pretty sweet,
    I imagine they'll have a way to cancel the cards from the app on the phone if you actually loose the damn thing. I wonder if you couldn't swipe your drivers license into the thing.....
    Still very cool

    That was my concern as well. I'm not sure if there will be some kind of password involved. I do know that you connect it to your cell phone through bluetooth so you will be notified as soon as you are a certain distance away from the card (not sure how far). There are security concerns either way. If someone steals your wallet, they have all your cards that way too.

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    This is somewhat bothersome....

    A. Coins are designed to last for 2 years under normal usage and do not need to be recharged. Once the battery dies you will need to replace your Coin.
