Pokitt

An RFID-friendly wallet packs essentials into a super-slim design

For most, comfort and convenience come first when choosing daily accessories. A new solution to Costanza-size wallets, Pokitt is a form-fitting little card holder conceived around the idea of simplicity on-the-go.

Constructed entirely of a soft flexible polymer material and measuring less than 1/2" thick, Pokitt is just the right size for keeping all of your bare essentials close at hand. But the key design innovation takes its cue from the proliferation of scannable RFID card technology. The ultra-slim Pokitt holds two such "smart cards," one on each side, enabling the user to properly scan either card without opening the wallet.

With banks and major public transportation systems already widely taking advantage of the scannable cards throughout much of Europe and parts of Asia (Pokitt has flawlessly scanned through with London’s Oyster card, Hong Kong’s Octopus card, Brisbane’s Go card and Sydney's Tcard) and a steadily increasing presence in the U.S., concepts like these stand a chance of reinventing the way we think about wallets.

Brands can get in on the action too by making a customized version through Pokitt's Promotions channel. The pliable material can be molded in any color combination and can even be branded with company logos.

At $25 and available in six colorways, Pokitt makes an affordable choice too. Currently selling through their online store, the Australian based company ships worldwide.
