Futuristic Credit Card probably a no-show

Shopping can be very therapeutic for those who are going through difficult moments in life, but the consequences could plunge the shopper into further depression with mounting debts that never seem to be paid off. The futuristic credit card concept designed by Jacob Palmborg aims to prevent overspending, featuring a screen that tells you all your current economic information including account balances as well as how much your spending spree will affect your future. It is linked to a central system via RFID and stores no data for security reasons. A biometric sensor also lets no one else but the owner access the confidential data within. When will we see this arrive in the real world? Probably never as banks thrive on charging insanely high interest rates on debts.
