Wallet that helps to combat fraud
Introducing the N1, the stylish slim line RFID protected wallet that ditches the bulk and combats fraud. Goodbye chunky… Hello there N1.
But there is more to the N1 than its minimal and modern design.
Along with contactless technology comes a new wave of sophisticated fraud: Criminals who can steal your credit card data by walking past you with electronic scanners, maybe even with their mobile phones. The new threat exists because of the radio-frequency identification chips (RFID) or Near Field Communication (NFC) chips that are starting to be embedded in credit and debit cards.
But founders James Dunlop and Sean Magowan of modern fashion brand imossi have their own take on how to tackle this problem. Their new product, the N1, is made from a single piece of anodized aluminium, a material that blocks these sophisticated fraudsters from scanning your data. It is available now to buy on kickstarter.
Says James Dunlop,
“We wanted to create something that not only stands out both in its simplicity and eye catching form but most importantly, protects you against RFID fraud. The N1 is machined from a single piece of aluminium block and is uniform cut giving it precise, symmetrical edges that we hope will suit the modern minimalist looking for a wallet that is beautiful and functional in equal measure.
“The N1 is just bigger than a credit card and has a woven elastic strap that allows you to securely store 6-8 cards and bank notes. The interchangeable straps come in an array of colours for customisation.
“And last, but of course by no means least, the N1 also offers that little something extra - an integrated bottle opener for when you’re caught short. A simple addition that we hope will just make life that little bit easier.”
The imossi team have just launched the N1 on Kickstarter (http://redir.aspx?
