NXT-ID Inc. is a United States–based biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market. The company’s lead product is Wocket®, its next-generation smart wallet. Designed to protect the identity of users, it eliminates nearly all the physical cards in a wallet without needing a smartphone or Internet connection. In addition to passwords and private notes, virtually any credit, debit, membership gift, or loyalty card in a wallet today can be loaded and protected on Wocket. The included WocketCard works virtually anywhere magnetic-stripe cards are accepted today and can only be used with the owner’s biometric (voice) stamp of approval or with a PIN. The Wocket can be stylishly accessorized to meet the taste and lifestyle of users, making it a true replacement for the conventional wallet. For more information, visit www.wocketwallet.com.
