Catching Thieves with a Smart Wallet

10 August 2017

Imagine a wallet that can double as a powerbank and WiFi hotspot but with additional security features and you have the Volterman wallet.

This smart wallet, when linked to a smartphone, can alert you when you have left either the wallet or phone at home. Additionally, the wallet is equipped with GPS tracking allowing you to follow your wallet in real-time if it is lost or stolen.

Another security feature includes a tiny built-in camera that is enabled once the wallet is lost or stolen, snapping images of the perpetrator opening the wallet. The image is then sent to the linked smartphone, letting you see who the culprit is.

To see the wallet in action, watch the accompanying video.
