Credit Card Voice Activation Coming Soon Thanks To Smart Wallet Maker


Credit Card Voice Activation Coming Soon Thanks To Smart Wallet Maker

 http://www.idigitaltimes.com/credit-card-voice-activation-coming-soon-thanks-smart-wallet-maker-417205

Smart credit cards that you control through voice commands may soon be a thing thanks to Wocket smart wallet maker, NXT-ID. The biometric authentication company announced this week that it has filed a patent for a system for using voice commands to select and verify payments. The voice activation would make it easier to pull up one of up to 10,000 cards that might be stored on the company’s own Wocket smart wallet but it also provides an additional layer of security.
“We are very excited to offer this new convenient and secure method to make payments”, David Tunnell, Chief Technology Officer of NXT-ID, said in the release. “We’ve all been there – Waiting in line as we fumble through our wallets to find the right card or information. With this invention, we not only secure your data by recognizing you are who you say you are from your voice, but we also provide an extremely convenient way for you to select how you wish to pay.”
The Wocket smart wallet can store digital version of up to 10,000 of your cards. You can swipe all your stripe cards like credit cards into the Wocket, scan in barcode cards or manually enter textual information. So instead of carrying all these physical cards, your smart wallet houses a digital version of the cards that can be accessed via the Wocket’s touchscreen. When it comes to paying, you can tap the wallet on POS systems that support NFC technology or you can load the card information onto the accompanying Wocket card to physically swipe a card. Therefore, Wocket smart wallet system will work anywhere credit cards or mobile tap to pay are accepted. 
With the new voice activation system, instead of pulling up the card you want through the touchscreen, you can just say the card you want out loud. Fortunately, you can name your cards so instead of shouting Mastercard account ending in 1234, so you can say Ice cream sundae account or grocery card instead of Black Amex Card. Unlike other smart cards or wallets, the Wocket can work on its own without an accompanying app or Internet connection. But there are also accompanying smartphone and desktop apps, so voice control and verification can also work across different devices. 
“Convenience to access your private data is just as important as securing your private data”, Tunnell added. “To make it even more convenient, the voice may be recognized and emulated on the same device, such as a cell phone or our Wocket smart wallet, or recognized on one device and directed to another device such as a watch or a reprogrammable smart card like our WocketCard to then make the payment. In addition, the ability to name your account further protects your information since no one knows which card you are choosing. For instance, no private information is revealed if you say “grocery card” or “gas card number 3″. You know the account you are choosing, but no one else does.”
The Wocket smart wallet was previously accepting pre orders priced at $150 but potential buyers now have to request an invite to purchase. The product is similar to Coin, which stores up to 8 cards on the smart card itself and unlimited cards on the Coin mobile app. Coin is only available for preorder now for $100 with shipping scheduled for this summer. But both Coin and Wocket should get a move on before mobile payment apps like Apple Pay and Google Pay make their products obsolete.

Patent filed for voice-directed payment system


Patent filed for voice-directed payment system

http://www.ctpost.com/news/article/Patent-filed-for-voice-directed-payment-system-6100072.php

Oxford-based NXT-ID, which sells the Wocket smart wallet, has filed a provisional patent for a voice-directed payment system.

NXT-ID is a biometric authentication company focused on the mobile commerce market. With this patent, the company is introducing a new payment method where accounts can be selected via voice recognition and the payment account may be accessed only if the speech (the word associated with the payment account) and the speaker (a biometric) are both recognized.

Once recognized, payment is directed to an appropriate interface. The patent also introduces the concept of “voice cards,” which are alias names given by a user to describe specific private information such as credit and debit cards, further enhancing security as well as convenience.

“We are very excited to offer this new convenient and secure method to make payments,” said David Tunnell, chief technology officer of NXT-ID, in a statement. “We’ve all been there — waiting in line as we fumble through our wallets to find the right card or information. With this invention, we not only secure your data by recognizing you are who you say you are from your voice, but we also provide an extremely convenient way for you to select how you wish to pay.”

The technology works with current technologies, but also can enhance security and provide a path for more convenient and more secure future payment technologies, company officials said.

“Convenience to access your private data is just as important as securing your private data,” Tunnell said. “With this invention, you may simply ask for a specific payment account and the account is programmed to an appropriate emulator that emulates the account selected. To make it even more convenient, the voice may be recognized and emulated on the same device, such as a cell phone or our Wocket smart wallet, or recognized on one device and directed to another device such as a watch or a reprogrammable smart card like our WocketCard to then make the payment.”

NXT-ID’s Wocket was recognized as one of the top technology products at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show by multiple outlets including Wired.com. The Wocket works anywhere credit cards are accepted and only works with the owner’s biometric stamp of approval.

Sucanon®…Diabetes is not curable but is treatable…enjoy life™


Sucanon®…Diabetes is not curable but is treatable…enjoy life™

 What is Sucanon®?:

Sucanon® is one of only several drugs approved in the world, belonging to a class of diabetic medications called insulin sensitizers.  Insulin sensitizers lower blood sugar by increasing the muscle, fat and liver’s sensitivity to insulin.  Insulin sensitizers are blood sugar normalizing or euglycemic drugs that help return the blood sugar to the normal range without the risk of low blood sugars.

1. Insulin binding to receptors and entering the cell, (which is impeded in NIDDM patients), is essential for the uptake of glucose 2. Sucanon® increases the binding of insulin to its receptors 3. Sucanon® increases the internalization of insulin 4. As a result, Sucanon® increases the intracellular level of insulin, which then increases the uptake of glucose.
Sucanon®  is a medication that helps the body make better use of its own insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar levels.  Type II Diabetics produce insulin, but their cells gradually lose the ability to absorb and use insulin, to get sugar out of the blood stream.  Sucanon®  transports sugar out of the blood stream and into cells where it can be burned.  Sucanon®  particularly helps muscle cells use insulin and thus draw sugar out of the blood stream.
Sucanon® increases sensitivity to insulin which leads to decreased blood sugar levels and a reduction of a wide range of Type II Diabetes symptoms,  including: weight gain, fatigue, excess thirst and excess urination.  The reduction in blood sugar levels also reduces the possibility of peripheral nerve damage; the damage caused to peripheral nerves by chronic high blood sugar can ultimately lead to impotence in men and amputation of limbs in both men and women.
  Diabetes
 
 Diabetes is a condition in which a person has a high blood sugar (glucose) level, either because the body do not produce enough insulin, or because body cells do not properly respond to the insulin that is produced. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas which regulates glucose. Insulin enables body cells to absorb glucose and to convert it into turn into energy. If the body cells do not absorb the glucose, the glucose accumulates in the blood (hyperglycemia), leading to vascular, nerve, and other complications.

There are many types of diabetes the most common of which are:
  • Type I Diabetes (previously called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or juvenile-onset diabetes): results from the body’s failure to produce insulin, and presently requires the person to inject insulin.
  • Type II Diabetes (previously called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or maturity-onset diabetes): results from insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use insulin properly, sometimes combined with an absolute insulin deficiency.

In 2000, according to the World Health Organization, at least 171 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes, or 2.8% of the population.

The incidence of diabetes mellitus in Mexico will have risen 40% by the year 2012, killing over 100,000 Mexicans during that year, according to Jose Angel Cordova Villalobos, Health Secretary, Mexico.
– http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/88951.php

Only 68 percent of U.S. diabetics are diagnosed, according to the American Diabetes Association, an advocacy group based in Alexandria, Virginia. Some 5.7 million Americans don’t know they have the disease, the association said.
