This project is quite funded, and promises delivery next summer. It’s a great idea: all your credit card accounts organized into one app that works in tandem with a trick credit card-sized-and-shaped dongle so you need only carry one card, ever. Simply use the digital readout to select which card you want to use, swipe and your transaction is complete, minus the pocket bulge. Should you wander more than 10 feet from the card, you phone will send an alert. Dunno ’bout you, but something here smells awfully future-y to us. $55
