This patent forms the basis for NXT-ID's widely anticipated next generation payment and identity product - the Wocket™. "Rather than attempting to replace the wallet, as companies such as Google and Isis (founded by AT&T Mobility (NYSE: T), T-Mobile USA (NYSE: TMUS) and Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) are doing by putting contactless payment capability on smartphones, our method brings the wallet into the 21st century," said Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, Inc. The Wocket™ requires unique biometrically enabled multi-factor authentication to ensure only owners and their private information can be copied into or out from the secure vault wallet device and on to the dynamically programmable magnetic stripe NXTCard. Authenticated users may then select payment information, via touch display or voice command and use the NXTCard as they would any other magnetic stripe credit or debit card. There is an added advantage in that the NXTCard replaces multiple cards that are currently kept in the wallet with a single secure card.
