Conceptual Live Tracking Card that tracks your spending

The Live Checking Card displays the accumulated spending amount on your card after every purchase. Clearly, the concept itself is nothing short of a nightmare for wives and girlfriends as it displays real time information of their shopping adventures. The underlying technology behind Live Checking Cards is e-ink, which checks your purchase history and matches them up with the bank account transactions using RFID.

I’m bristling at the remark about it being nothing short of a nightmare for wives and girlfriends, because men spend too!!!

Just single purchases on much bigger toys (cars, electronics, etc).

Nevertheless, I think it’s an interesting concept. I don’t see how it would help me, but maybe for those of you who are visual spenders and don’t want to keep a budget, this might be a good thing if it ever comes to fruition.
