Israeli Ingenuity - A Credit Card USB Drive!
Israel 21c reports:
"I think the card shape is the future," Walletex CEO Alon Atsmon told ISRAEL21c. "If it is much smaller it gets lost. The most convenient place is in your wallet."
Atsmon, a graduate of the Israel Defense Forces' prestigious Talpiot technology program and then the Israeli Air Force, is very familiar with card technology. In 1998 he set up a company called ComSense to develop a battery-powered card for authentication purposes. ComSense was later sold to Israel company Beepcard, but the credit-card shape stuck in Atsmon's mind, and in 2004 he established Walletex to revolutionize the USB drive market.
"The challenge was to make everything thin," he explains from the company's offices in Rishon Lezion. "This is the thinnest USB drive in the world."
