This super smart wallet by Volterman Inc has created plenty of hype and raised over $1.29 million USD on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform.
The Volterman smart wallet is made from premium materials and offers more connected features than any other wallet we know of. Despite the wallet’s built-in tech, it’s lightweight and has plenty of space for your cards and cash, and it’s water-resistant.
Inside the Volterman smart wallet is a Texas Instruments ARM Cortex A9 CPU, 512MB RAM, 32GB ROM, 64GB embedded SD storage, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS & GLONASS, 4MP camera, worldwide 2G & 3G connectivity and built-in 802.11 BGN Wi-Fi.
I did say it was the Superman of smart wallets!
Wait, there’s more! Volterman also has an RFID protection feature to prevent digital pickpockets from accessing your contactless payment cards. A built-in power bank with 2000mAh to 5000mAh (depending on version) so you can charge your batteries on the go. Two-way ‘find my phone’ or ‘find my wallet’ alerts when you wonder out of range.
Thieves are bang out of luck with this wallet!
If you do happen to leave the wallet anywhere, or it does get pinched, the built-in global GPS/GLONASS tracker enables you to locate the wallet in real-time. And, the built-in 5MP camera will snag a mug shot of whoever opens your wallet and then send the photo to your phone.
Data roaming can be pretty expensive. Volterman’s Wi-Fi Hotspot ensures you can get connected to the internet, wherever you are. And Volterman claims the internet charges are up to 3 times cheaper than regular roaming charges.
The Volterman app is compatible with iOS and Android and allows you to control certain features, such as push notifications.
The add ons available for the super wallet include: Wireless charger, engraving your initials into the leather, passport cover with Bluetooth traceability.
Indiegogo prices range from $109 to $175 USD depending on which version of the wallet (Bifold, Travel or Cardholder) with discounts of up to 50% off the retail price. The estimated shipping date for Indiegogo backers is February 2018.
