Imagine the convenience of condensing all of your credit cards into one. You’d save space in your wallet and could stop worrying about which card to use in a given transaction. The Fuze card is a slim, secure and convenient electronic card with an EMV chip that holds up to 30 gift, debit or credit cards all at once. It promises advanced technology and arrives consumer-ready, but is the Fuze card really the mother of all cards? Here are the pros and cons.
The Fuze card was launched by a company called BrillantTS as the world’s thinnest all-in-one smart card. According to CEO Jaehun Bae, the idea began in the early 2000’s with a company called CrucialTec, which was the only company to “successfully miniaturize optical mouse tech into a small module as big as your fingernail.” The company then decided to use that same technology to develop the Fuze card by packing a lot of technology into a 0.03 inch thick card.
The concept was fully funded on Indiegogo in just two hours and is compatible with all iPhone and Android phones and magnetic strip/NFC/EMV/Bluetooth devices. The card was designed to condense your entire wallet by using multi-card technology to store the information of up to 30 different cards. You can use it anywhere including at the market, your favorite restaurant, or at the ATM, and it works just like any other credit card. The so-called “smart card” allows you to condense up to 30 credit, debit, gift, OTP, identification, and membership cards into one.
Each order comes with a Fuze card, a card reader, and a portable battery charger. To use it, you’ll first need to charge your card with the portable battery charger. Then you’ll need to download the Fuze app and connect your devices to it. The free iOS and Android app allow you to manage your accounts, expenses, and cards. Next, you’ll use the card reader to swipe your cards and add their information to your Fuze card. Once that’s done, you’ll set a passcode using a six-button combination to secure your card, and it will be ready to use.
The Fuze card allows you to scroll through and select any card that you have uploaded by pushing a button on the card’s E-paper display when it’s time to make a transaction. You can use it with one-time sales by selecting a single card to use when the Fuze card is out of Bluetooth range because the card will automatically lock after the transaction is complete. And since only you know the passcode, no one else will be able to use your card.
The Fuze card appears to be the most advanced smart card on the market. It outperforms other cards such as Coin, Plastc, Stratos, and SWYP because it holds the most data, can be used at an ATM and is currently production ready while others are in the early stages of development. Some have even thrown in the towel already.
The card appeals to internet and tech-savvy people who like the idea of combining their cards into one. Card malfunctions might be the Fuze card’s biggest problem. If it doesn’t work and you have left all other cards at home, you could be in trouble. As the company has already met its funding goal, you can order yours today and expect to have it delivered after the holiday season.
