Hacked CASIO F-91W digital watch #WearableWednesday
A fitting update for a horological legend, the casio f-91w. Add NFC payment to your wrist. Matteo Pisani on Hackster.io chops together his watch and credit card. The guide goes through all the steps and has some deep dive into the methodology.
I thought it would be nice not to have to take out my credit/debit card from the wallet or my mobile phone from the pocket to pay, but instead, to bring the watch closer to the PoS and just pay with a pinch of modern-day magic ✨.
So I decided to give it a new life and take it to the next level by combining nostalgia and innovation in pure hacking style.
