Using Apple’s Find My network, the new AirCard from Swiss company Rolling Square can slip into your wallet like a credit card and help keep track of it. But it’s not just a tracker.
“AirCard is the first card-sized tracker in the world with a digital business card,” the company said. Its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign has far-surpassed its goal with six days to go, so it’s likely the cards will ship.
Rolling Square AirCard
With more than 14,000 backers and over $885,000 pledged toward a goal of just $21,876 as of Friday, Rolling Square’s Kickstarter funding campaign for its new AirCard should result in the product shipping after the campaign ends next week. The company said AirCard is its thirteenth campaign and it has shipped 600,000 products.
Similar to cards from Eufy, Tile and Eckster, AirCard is a card-sized tracker that works over the Find My network. That’s where Apple users’ devices detect the item and you are notified of its location on the map in the Find My app.
You can share the location with up to five people in the network. But Find My uses encryption, so no one else will know, including Apple and Rolling Square.
RFID blocker and digital business card
But it’s more than a tracker. AirCard is also an RFID blocker that can help protect your credit cards’ information from scanning. And it’s an NFC digital business card on which you can store information, like your contact information and social media links.
The card is 2.2mm thick. It features a 105-decibel speaker — AirTag trackers sound off at 60dB — that can warn you if you’re being tracked and help you find the card with a ringing sound when you ask Siri where your wallet is. The card issues left-behind reminders to your iPhone, as well.
Advanced lost mode
If that’s not enough and you still can’t find your wallet (or other item you slipped AirCard into), you have another option. Here’s how Rolling Square describes its advanced lost mode:
If you can’t find your wallet anymore, you can enable the advanced lost mode through Rolling Square’s proprietary platform Sherr.it and set a message, as well as providing your contact information. This way, if someone finds your wallet and scans the QR code on AirCard they can read your message and contact you.
After 30 months, get 50% off on a new one
AirCard’s battery lasts 30 months, according to Rolling Square, and apparently it can’t be replaced. That’s why the company offers 50% off the price of your next AirCard. It sends a discount code when the times comes.
The company said you can keep the old card, which will still function as a digital business card with scan-to-find functionality. Or you can send it back and Rolling Square said it will resuse most of the components.
The company said it offer guaranteed delivery, a 30-day, no-questions-asked return policy and a 2-year warranty.
