If this shit works as advertised and they manage to get critical mass ANYWHERE, yes, it is a killer app.

I want to see a prototype in action.

This is key. If their business model allows them to offer the actual cards for very little money (or perhaps even for free), in exchange for rapid acceptance and attainment of critical mass, it could be a game changer.

Otherwise, it will be a case of "can you hear me now?"  Grin

If that thing is remotely possible it could be interestering for bitcoin... or implementing its successor...

Questions:
If using BTC - how would it store the blockchain etc?
Can that type of tech fit into the dimensions? 1.3mm isnt really much.. and i think a lot of space is "wasted" with PV and battery.. not to speak of the screen+buttons..
Estimated price?

It doesn't need to store the blockchain... it just needs to store the private keys  to sign transactions and have a couple trusted sources to check balances with.

The thickness is impressive, but there are very very thin displays and PVs available these days.

Price will be key since these things are worthless unless a shitload of people have them.

I'm wondering how this system can prevent spam. What's preventing someone from DDoSing the network with messages?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Maybe you have to pay a satoshi with each message for it to be passed Wink.

So they find it feasible to pack a solar panel, processor/screen/touchscreen/transmitters/battery all into something not much bigger than a credit card? Right... If this were possible it would be fucking awesome, look for this item in 2025!

I saw this the other day.  It looks to me like someone has been reading my other threads...

And managed to find some hardware to do it with.  I've been trying to find the manufacturer of the card device in order to get more details on the thing, but so far it seems to be vaporgear.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Note to self, gamer has no imagination...

Do you still think of batteries as a round cylinder ?   

I think you dont know enough about the actual tech you think is so sci-fi 

The solar panel, can be thinner than a piece of paper..

The screen same thing..

The touch membrane on a screen..  thinner than paper..

The "battery" would be a capacitor, these come in ALL shapes, thickness's and sizes..
