If you think about it, we’ve amassed a lot of security features for our various gadgets by now. We have password encryption, biometric scanners, and alarms to protect our gadgets.
But if you think about it, one important thing that we need to really protect seems to have been overlooked. I’m talking about the wallet. We keep a lot of important things in the wallet, yet we seem to have not given any thought on how to secure our belongings inside the wallet. If we lose our wallets, we basically give the thief free rein with our money, credit cards, ATM cards, IDs, and our other personal trinkets that we keep in them. We’re basically risking our privacy the more we put really sensitive objects in our wallets.
Now, the iWallet is being touted as a solution to this problem of possible identity theft. It is made of Kevlar and carbon fiber – the same material bulletproof vests are made of. Now I don’t know why anyone would want to put a bullet through your wallet, but for those times you need to protect your high school graduation picture from an armed attacker, this would be perfect.
Other added security measures would be the built-in biometrics reader – use your fingerprint to open your wallet! – and a Bluetooth alarm that will buzz your phone if your wallet and phone start to have a considerable distance away from each other.
I actually think that these security measures are a bit overkill. Unless you’re keeping the nuclear missile launch codes in your wallet, I don’t know why else you’d have a biometrics scanner in your wallet. But if you really feel like you need this and you have $299.00 USD to burn, go ahead, get an iWallet.
