Featured Tech Kickstarter: Pay with Loop!
Pay with Loop!
Loop is the first mobile wallet to let you securely store all your cards in your phone and let you pay at more than 90% of retailers.
Why is that a big deal? Because for the first time, you can use your smartphone to better organize and use the cards in your wallet, and to better interact with the card issuers and merchants you do business with. Loop is all about making your life easier, keeping your cards more protected, and helping you look and feel like the trendsetter you are.
Here are Loop’s first two products….
The Loop Fob is a small audio jack device with a built-in card reader to safely store your cards encrypted into a secure memory module. A microprocessor and a magnetic induction loop within the Fob allows you to transmit your card data to just about any merchant card reader. The Loop Fob is compatible with both iOS and Android devices (iOS app will be ready by December for download, the Android app will be available in the first quarter of 2014). The Loop Fob is capable of transmitting your card data while attached to your phone or can be easily used in detached mode in restaurant or bar settings.
(The Loop Fob will look the same as the pictures above. The production version will be made with more resilient plastic than the rapid prototype versions shown above. Rapid prototype plastics tend to be more brittle than production plastics.)
In the package you will also get an audio jack key ring to carry around your Fob.
The Loop ChargeCase is a sleek, protective case that provides you with a secure wallet that you can use, but also delivers up to 60% more battery power for your iPhone 5 and 5s when you need it. The ChargeCase comes with an audio jack mag stripe reader to swipe in all of your mag stripe cards into the Loop device.
(The ChargeCase pictures are exactly what our production version will look like. On the production version the verbiage “Hold to Card Slot” will be on a removable sticker.)
(Here is the Loop ChargeCase giving you the extra boost you need to get through the day. The ChargeCase gives you 60% more battery.)
- Both the Loop Fob and the Loop ChargeCase come with a USB cable for charging.
- The LoopWallet app will be available for free download.
