Forget the credit card as a way to pay – the next big thing will be the car key! BMW and electronics giant Philips have unveiled a prototype of the world’s first multifunctional fob.

A smart card stored in the key lets users pass it over a sensor, to pay for goods, fuel and road tolls. Advanced encryption protects the driver’s details.

Launch dates remain secret, but it’s set to debut on top BMWs.

Lets just hope people dont find a way to hack them...cos lose the key, youve lost your car....and a lot of money...as well as whatever the take out of your account.

Wonder what system theyd use when you come to sell it. Any BMW Im guessing would need to be sold via the dealer.

Ooooo BMW (sorry, Philips, let's get this correct; in other words the Germans have licensed the technology off the Dutch) are to offer a new way to pay as additional value for their top cars...

Wow money on the move, and no need to carry cash!! OMG amazing stuff.

Tis a real shame Barclaycard launched something called a credit card back in 1972... maybe someone better let the Germans know about this??

You know it makes sense fella; I wonder how many shopkeepers are going to pay thousands to change their equipment/buy additional equipment, to suit a select few BMW drivers?

Yeah you guessed it, very few. Ever get the feeling this will go the same way as Mondex??
