BrilliantTS Launches Fuze Card: The World’s Thinnest All-in-One Credit Card
BrilliantTS, a “smart” equipment manufacturer based in Korea, just launched the Fuze Card. This is considered to be the world’s thinnest all-on-one credit card, measuring just 0.03 inches thick. It can store up to 30 debit and credit cards, and has a rechargeable battery that can last up to 30 days.
This may not be an ideal time for the Fuze Card, with several similar products having already failed. Qvivr announced in February that it was shutting down the Swyp all-in-one card, and Plastc cancelled their program before the card ever hit the market.
The biggest issue with all-in-one cards is that mobile wallets are becoming increasingly more popular. Why use a card that stores other card data when you can use an app on your phone? This saves time and provides the same overall convenience. Nevertheless, Fuze Card has already raised over $166,000 on Indiegogo, and there is more than a month remaining on the campaign. The original goal was only $50,000.
The Fuze Card works with Apple and Android devices, and can be used as a magnetic strip or smartchip credit card. If you leave your card somewhere, you will receive a mobile notification letting you know where you last had it. You can remotely wipe all your card information, which is great if the card ever gets lost or stolen.
The non-EMV version of the card starts at $149 and is mainly intended for gift cards and membership cards. The EMV model is $199 and can work with nearly every payment card on the market.
