CANBANDCommonwealth Bank

This is another proactive project that was born during our Spark internship at M&C SAATCHI.

Inspired by the active life in Australia, and specially with activities that makes very unconvinient carring your wallet along, we decide before any other bank or payment systems started thinking about, to use the RFID pay chip (called Pay Tag by Commonwealth Bank) on bracelets.

Unfortunately, even though the Bank was very interested, timings were not ideial and the idea was dropped. But not after we managed to build a prototype to prove the concept to them. Visa and other payment systems start to provide a bracelet version a bit later on.
