Credit Cards That Think They Are Gadgets

holy_calamity writes “Pittsburgh startup Dynamics Inc has unveiled gadget-like credit cards with buttons, lights and even displays built into the same space as a conventional card. One card has two buttons on the front, which, when pressed, rewrite the data on the card’s magnetic stripe, allowing it to act as multiple bank or credit cards in one. Another has several buttons and a display in place of the card’s number. Only after entering a PIN is the magnetic stripe populated and the full card number revealed, and after a short time both go blank again for security.”
I wonder how long it’ll be until somebody builds onboard biometrics into one of these things.
