E-Minor Innovation Scholar Introduces GPS Wallet
Junior Innovation Scholar Andrew Royce Bauer is CEO of his family’s leather company, Royce. Bauer has created a product causing huge buzz with majorretailers and in the press! Check out this article from the New York Daily News. “Enabled with GPS-tracking technology, the Royce Freedom Wallet sounds an alarm if it leaves your side. It’s linked to an app on users’ smartphones, so you can follow the wallet wherever it goes in case it’s missing," wrote Bauer. ‘Someone standing 10 to 15 feet away from you can skim the numbers off your card with a device,’ Bauer explained. ‘It’s crazy, but it happens. Thieves are so creative. When I designed this, I had to match their creativity.’ He started selling the wallet on a limited basis a few months ago, but its official launch was Nov. 29, Black Friday.
