What is it? Kerv is, as its cre­ators de­scribe it, “the world’s first con­tact­less pay­ment ring”. It’s ba­si­cally a ring with an NFC chip in­side that lets you pay by fist-bump­ing the pay­ment ter­mi­nal like a bro. Like a bro who has no time for credit cards or Ap­ple Pay. Be­cause they’re too busy be­ing a bro.

When’s it due? April 2016.

Why are we ex­cited? It doesn’t need to be paired with a smart­phone and doesn’t need to be charged – it just works, to bor­row a phrase. It’s quick and sim­ple and makes Ap­ple Pay look rather cum­ber­some by com­par­i­son. That’s surely wor­thy of a fist bump.
