The ThinkGeek 8-bit Tie

For the geeks in peoples’ lives their whole world was 8-Bit, just like the video games we grew up on. They leaped from platform to platform and fought scary mutated plants and animals. Their music was awesome (and still stuck in their heads today) but the coolest part was what they were wearing: a tie. Not just any tie, an 8-Bit tie!  It’s a silk-like Microfiber construction, clip on (for easy dressing and t-shirt wear if needed), and custom designed.

Single Credit Card = 8 credit cards

How about a better physical credit card?  The company, called Coin, is making a single credit card-sized device that can store information from other credit cards so that it can be used just like the stack of cards crowding wallets for everyday transactions.  Coin looks like a slick plastic credit card, and can swipe like one, but stores account information from multiple credit cards that can be accessed through the single Coin card itself. Users load information from their existing credit cards into their Apple or Android smartphones, which then sends the information to the Coin card using Bluetooth.
