Is the future of digital payments physical?
By Teamspirit on Wednesday, 28 September 2016
San Francisco studio New Deal Design has conceived a new digital payment device that it is pitching as a modern replacement for cash.
Studio head Gadi Amet, who designed the Fitbit activity tracker, hopes that the device, called Scrip, will help bring back a sense of value and emotional connection to our increasingly invisible financial transactions.
Scrip would work with current contactless payment systems, but with an added level of physicality thanks to the device’s tactile surface, which morphs to represent the amount of money being spent.
We love the concept and the design. What do you think?
