Future Tech: 

The business card of the digital age

A business card that can store everything about you

A business card that can store everything about you

It was only a matter of time before the good old business card would be attacked by technology: swivelCard features a built-in USB port that lets you store and share much more than just your name, email address and phone number.

This new digitalised way of exchanging information allows you to share everything from your CV, to a photo gallery or video, making communication in the workplace much more effective and efficient.

The swivelCard features a simple folding mechanism that makes it conveniently flat and easy to pocket, but when converted, a pop-up USB flash drive appears and can point the user to additional online material that you can edit, delete, or update at any time.

As part of a Kickstarter campaign, the project aims to improve the existing idea by allowing users to keep track of where and when the cards have been used. The $10,000 goal has been crashed with over $20,000 in pledges and with still 33 days to go, showing there is definitely a market for this product.

You can pre-order a set of 200 with a pledge of $259 (£154). That gives you the option to choose one of eight different designs. If you want to have complete control over how to customise the graphics on your 200 cards, that will set you back $419 (£249).

First impressions matter, and in era where we’re bombarded with so much information on a daily basis, swivelCard might just be the business card you need to leave a long lasting impression. If you’re excited by the potential of this idea then make sure you pre-order online.
