  • Thin is In. The Future of Digital Wallets

    by Christina Nguyen White

    The growing hole in your back jeans pocket is getting a bit too personal.

    No need to swipe anymore. Just scan.

    When can we get rid of our wallets without losing the cash? We know mobile is here. Now learn how far we can take it. Digital wallets are within very close reach. With RFIDs, QR codes, and Big-Brother-like tracking, the technology is already in place.

    Checkout with your phone. Instantly grab coupons when you checkout. Scan your digital ticket at Friday’s ballgame. Digitally split the bill with your friends.

    The possibilities that we’ve always wished for are now within reach. Get a glimpse into how retailers are edging towards digital, understand the impact of how this will change the way we buy, and ultimately, as designers, understand how this will change the way we interact with our mobile phones.

How is technology and the industry moving forward to ensure consumers can rely on their mobile devices as their mobile pocketbook and how will these changes shape consumer behavior and content consumption.
