The world of wallets is about to change with new and exciting technologies making payments easier than ever. However, most credit card holders are understandably reluctant to use their smartphone for transactions -- this is due to a variety of reasons including:

  • Limited battery life
  • Dependency on wireless network coverage
  • Well publicized security threats

Rather than depending on a smartphone for transactions, NXT-ID has developed a truly next-generation electronic wallet.

Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) has been issued a patent by the USPO (via AppleInsider) that describes a system for using facial recognition and detection on a mobile or desktop computing device.
