Liam Casey’s PCH is teaming up with a Massachusetts company to bring to market a “wearable stamp” designed to enable to allow users to make contactless payments.
"The manufacturing company has signed a partnership with MC10, which has developed the technology.
PCH said the deal “will allow brands to develop a variety of consumer applications for the platform, which is a skin-worn, ultra-thin, stretchable and disposable stamp.”
As well as contactless payments, the companies hope the product – which is similar to a disposable tattoo – will be able to facilitate hotel room access, event registration, and interactive experiences at amusement parks, sporting and music events, when paired with a smartphone, tablet, or near-field communication reader."
