Uh, Honey?!: Checking Card Tracks Spending

February 13, 2010


Want to keep better track of your spending and don't know how to use your bank's website? Well you're in luck, thanks to the conceptual Live Checking Card. Actually, I guess you're not, CAUSE IT'S CONCEPTUAL.

The Live Checking Card represent a very interesting concept - it displays the accumulated spending amount on your card after every purchase. Clearly, the concept itself is nothing short of a nightmare for wives and girlfriends as it displays real time information of their shopping adventures. The underlying technology behind Live Checking Cards is e-ink, which checks your purchase history and matches them up with the bank account transactions using RFID.

I actually think this is a great idea. Except instead of just adding your accumulated totals it should give you a running balance of your account. Which, for me, is currently -$240.64. Just sayin', sugar daddy. Ladies?

Thanks to Van, who doesn't need a conceptual check card cause he has real one. Lucky.
