Regular credit card design makes it almost impossible to pick a credit card up off a flat surface. Anyone who's had the misfortune to lay their credit card down on a damp tabletop knows that it results in a ton of frustration, a lot of embarrassing sliding around and minutes spent wishing you had Lana del Rey-style fake nails.

Designer Li Wenkai wants to change that with a new credit card design. Her improved credit card features a small bump and depression on one side of the card, so that it stands up just slightly from any flat surface it's left on. The credit card design places the added textural features in a spot where they don't affect the magnetic swipe or chip of the credit card.

It's a tiny innovation that could have a major impact on daily life.
