THE CARD HOLDER THAT GUARDS YOUR CARDS, AND PER­SONAL INFO

Herworld (Singapore) - - GREAT STUFF -

Go­ing cash­less is con­ve­nience with an in­con­ve­nient draw­back: Ac­cord­ing to Dutch com­pany Se­crid, all cards – from credit to trans­port – have a chip and an­tenna for wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion that can be eas­ily read, ac­ti­vated and cloned by card thieves from a me­tre away. Its aha so­lu­tion: a card holder made of alu­minium (the metal is a poor con­duc­tor of elec­tro­mag­netic waves) to de­flect ra­dio waves, shield­ing cards from un­wanted wire­less comm.

The card holder has only one slot for up to six cards (or four if the cards are em­bossed). Or­gan­ise and stack them to­gether, then slide the deck into the slot. A spring mech­a­nism in­side and a lever at the bot­tom push the cards out slightly when you need them. For more stor­age, Se­crid sug­gests bind­ing two alu­minium card hold­ers to­gether with its elas­ti­cised band (see above). From Ante @ Tangs at Tang Plaza, $59$199.
