Fuze: Your entire wallet on one card


as the world’s thinnest all-in-one smartcard, fuze card sets out the be the solution for those with wallets which pack more plastic than actual cash. whether it’s gift cards, loyalty cards, credit cards, debit cards, or even your gym membership card, every little micro-chip carrying piece of plastic pads out your purse to the point where it gets hard to keep track. so, the team at brilliantTS—the company behind fuze–set out to create a wallet staple that can incorporate up to 30 cards into one single encrypted chip. anything with a barcode, an EMV chip, a magnetic strip, or NFC tech, fuze stores it. just swipe the card, or take a picture of it with your smartphone, and the fuze smart card will load up the necessary information.

of course, having one card makes it much more difficult to lose all your different pieces of plastic, but it’s a lot of personal data to store on one single  85.60 mm × 53.98 device. that’s why brilliantts have linked fuze card to a smartphone app, which makes it easy to wipe it of all information should it be lost or stolen. you can also track your card to find out its location should it go walkabouts, or, as an early christmas gift to the forgetful, fuze allows you to set up alerts to remind you if you’ve gone out and about, and accidentally left it at home.

with an e-paper display, the 0.03 mm thin smartcard allows you to select any loaded card as and when you need it—just scroll through your selection with the push of a button.the device has a month-long battery life, and comes with a portable power bank that holds one extra charge for travel.

jaehun bae, CEO at brilliantTS, expands on his expertise in packing advanced tech into small sizes, explaining ‘the journey began in the early 2000’s when I co-founded CrucialTec. we were the only company to successfully miniaturize optical mouse tech into a small module as big as your fingernail. we further developed that technology to develop fuze card, which packs so much tech in a 0.03 in thick device.’
