Does anyone know anything about the Coins card?

I'm wondering if any of you happen to know something about these things. Could their information be easily hacked when people jack a WAP code? Would all the data be swipped if that code is too be taken? Just wondering. All in all its looks like a pretty cool thing to have in the wallet.

In theory anything can be cracked - that card needs a physical swipe it looks like so you need physical access to the card and a reader. (Very brief / Lazy research shows no wireless)

 

How secure it is depends on the security that's been implemented.

 

I like that its a dedicated device and a replacement for normal plastic cards - it probably is preferable to it going on as a phone app on an embedded OS where its difficult to see whats logging your transactions and are usually transmitting wireless.
