Printed business cards are loaded with contact information like phone numbers, a link to a website or a Twitter account, unless there’s a QR code on it, this information will have to be manually referenced later on, unless you’ve got a TouchBase business card. As outdated as business cards may seem, there are plenty of people who still have and use them. TouchBase makes the best of this by merging traditional business cards with technology.
A TouchBase business card can be tapped against he screen of a phone and the information on the card shows up on-screen. It works through an online web app, which is not necessary to download and a pattern of conductive ink that is unique to each person’s cards. This only works with TouchBase-printed business cards, but the designs can be fully customized.
TouchBase is currently raising funds for its innovative business cards on Indiegogo and hopes to raise a total of $30,000 within a period of just over a month.
