Rumba VanDam GO Watch - pay with your watchA future world I envision involves zipping around on hovercrafts, seeing holographic billboards and never having to carry a purse or wallet. (Fine, my futuristic images were greatly informed by Back to the Future). We’re probably not at the hovercraft/hologram stage of society yet, but incredibly, the third is now a reality with the Rumba VanDam GO Watch

This cool watch boasts a lot more features than just
telling time. What’s futuristic about the Rumba is that houses a chip
that includes a unique emergency ID number and payment functionality.
You create a customizable medical profile that lets you include anything
from an emergency name and contact number to your entire medical
history. If you’re ever in an accident, first responders can call the
phone number on your watch and immediately have access to all your
medical information (it can also be linked to Microsoft HealthVault

This would be great for older folks of course, or for kids with medical issues to wear
at all times. 

If that weren’t enough, you can also make
payments right from your watch. Once you sign up for the service, you receive a
prepaid debit chip that you can insert into your Rumba. Anywhere that
accepts contactless payments (and that’s about 180,000 retail locations)
and a quick swipe of the wrist is all you need.
