The immortal trio: Keys, Wallet, Cell Phone.
3 items, 3 pockets…Not anymore.
Huh? What do I mean?
Part 1 – Wallet in an iPhone
The idea here is simple – take a pic of your card. Bring your iPhone to the store. Instead of scanning your card, just allow the clerk to scan your iPhone. Ta Da!
Part 2 – Keys in an iPhone
via [PC Mag]
This Delphi prototype will allow your iPhone to function as your car key remote.
Yea – I know you’re amazed. But you haven’t heard anythin’ yet.
The Delphi Wireless Vehicle Access doesn’t just open your doors. It’s a "smart key":
Start your engine.
Check your gas tank.
Check if your doors are locked.
See the RPM.
See if a door is ajar.
See if the lights are on.
Adjust the temperature inside your car.
See the exact temperature.
Check if your car has been broken in to.
Monitor tire pressure…and more.
…All from your iPhone – and from as far as 1 mile away.
And yes, I did say prototype.
But hey, it was already announced at the 2008 Consumer Electronic Show – perhaps it’s not that far away.
