CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, February 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Tech and Biometrics stocks benefiting from newest innovative technologies: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), Apple, Inc. (NASDSAQ: AAPL), ATMI Inc. (NASDAQ: ATMI), Plug Power Inc. (NASDSAQ: PLUG) and Zynga, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZNGA)

NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCBB: NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, is focused on aiding consumers everywhere with their newest technology, the smart wallet known as the Wocket. The technology has gained the attention of Chad A. Verdi, an award-winning movie producer, prominent investor and businessman from Rhode Island. Mr. Verdi of Rhode Island. Mr. Verdi discusses what he believes are his two biggest projects to date in his career; his feature film "Bleed for This", with an award-winning team attached including Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese, and the market debut of his largest personal investment, NXT-ID, Inc.'s Wocket, a next-generation smart wallet designed to replace all the cards in your wallet. In a recent interview, Mr. Verdi, who has invested in NXT-ID, discussed why he's so high on the smart wallet technology.

"I have read a few analysts say that 2014 is the year to watch biometrics technology. We all saw the market and industry reaction last year to Apple incorporating fingerprint recognition technology in its smart phone," Verdi said. "It set the stage for an exciting race. NXT-ID, Inc. saw some competition come to market in November with the media launch of a competitor, the COIN. Both products are aiming to replace all the credit cards in your wallet, but I believe that the Wocket is superior with its biometric voice recognition technology and it can also store up to 100 cards, versus the eight cards the COIN enables. I think this is a very exciting time in the space and I am thrilled to be behind a game-changing technology. I believe this is my best investment to date. This is bigger than 'Bleed for This', I feel."

The Wocket™ is a new biometrically secure smart wallet designed to replace the traditional wallet and the number of cards consumers carry. Its dynamically programmable magnetic stripe, NXTCard can replace more than 100 cards and can include medical records, ID, coupons, etc. that are currently kept in a wallet, with one single secure card. In the initial phase of the project, students will research the market, the competition, and consumer trends related to the Wocket. The second part of the project will be primary research (surveys and focus groups) on the product, its features, possible marketing positioning and pricing and the final phase will be live on campus testing.
