Dont worry the bitcoincard will blow away the mintchip
+1 waiting forward for that
Wow.... their video
is simply... mind blowing.
However, as much as i want them to succeed, i don't really believe they can. They aim extremely high with all that advanced technology that is supposed to fit into such small card...
And I am not even saying anything about the problem of electromagnetic interference...
A number of us have seen the card prototypes. The claims they make from a technological standpoint are legitimate. We describe the adventure here
(also in another BitInstant blog post, ironically
Well, the prototypes work as predicted - that is something.
However in real world situations, when there are hundereds or thousands of cards in close vicinity with electromagnetic intereference from all sorts of weird devices, things may get more difficult.
We already know how it "works" with WiFi - when there are more than 10-15 devices per router, nobody can go online (i don't know about mesh wifi though).
