SAN DIEGO & LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iWallet Corporation (OTCQB: IWAL) unveiled the latest innovations in secure luxury techcessories, including the debut of its award-winning iPassport at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES)®, in Las Vegas, to a record-breaking 170,000 industry professionals, from around the globe. The show spanned across more than 2.2 million net square feet of exhibit space.
The company's flagship iWallet and newly released iPassport were honored at the show with a 2015 International CES Innovation Award, and were on display at the Personal Privacy and Cyber Security Marketplace, which showcased personal cyber security products.
iWallet Corporation garnered global media attention on the show floor as well as at the exclusive, press-only, Digital Experience! pre-show event. Hailed by Yahoo! Travel as one of “11 Cool Things From the Consumer Electronics Show That Will Make Travel Better,” the iPassport and iWallet were featured on CNBC, USA Today, Huffington Post and Fox News, among other global media outlets.
“CES serves as a proving ground for innovators and it vastly exceeded our expectations,” said Jack Chadsey, CEO of iWallet Corporation. “We successfully launched the iPassport to an influential audience of global travelers, industry executives and a record number of buyers and partners.”
Offering consumers the opportunity to elevate their fashion quotient while also protecting their passport, the iPassport features a striking carbon fiber design and a spacious main compartment with ample room for essential travel documents and credit cards. With standing orders in-hand from major global retailers and additional relationships secured at CES, the new iPassport features the following:
iPassport integrates a highly reliable biometric touch sensor for identity verification. Silicon fingerprint-capture technology, with a capture area of 10.4 x 14.4mm, provides high-quality fingerprint images that deliver fast, accurate and reliable results.
Bluetooth® 4.0 Smart Tethering Technology
Compatible with the most popular smart devices (iOS, Android, Windows Phone), iPassport's Bluetooth 4.0 SMART tethering function sounds an alarm when one of the devices leaves a pre-defined geographic perimeter.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags are now being placed in U.S. Passports, credit cards and other forms of identification. iPassport protects your sensitive, embedded information from hackers using discreet scanners.
The iPassport features a high-performance, lightweight 900mA lithium-ion battery that charges faster and lasts longer than your average battery. A once-a-month charge via a standard Micro-USB charger is all that is needed.
