Philip Campbell a designer and developer based in London has created a new contactless payment ring called Kerv, that launched over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website looking to raise £77,000 over the next 30 days to take the idea into production.
The Kerv contactless payment ring requires no charging and can be used without pairing it with your smart phone device. It is also waterproof and rugged preventing it from easily scratching.
Watch the video below to learn more about the rings unique features and characteristics, enabling it to help you make payments without the need for a credit card, PIN bank account number or smartphone.
Carrying a wallet or a purse can sometimes be impractical, uncomfortable or just downright risky. Ask joggers and cyclists. Or surfers and sunbathers. Or clubbers and festival folk … or even naturists – because you don’t get many pockets in a birthday suit.
So we made Kerv, the world’s first contactless payments ring. Now you can leave your wallets, purses, phones and smartwatches at home and still pay for stuff … with a single gesture. You can use Kerv anywhere in the world that displays the contactless payment symbol (above), which was over 38 million locations, last count.
So how do I actually make a payment with Kerv? Glad you asked. Just make a gesture over the contactless payment terminal in-store (or over an Oyster Card reader if you’re on London transport) and listen out for the beep – job done. Then listen out for the gasps of amazement from everyone around you. Seriously.
