UPDATE: EDG Multimedia Business Cards

EDG Business Cards (Images courtesy Jump Lab)
By Andrew Liszewski

Speaking of items we thought would never actually hit the market, the rCard multimedia business card concept was first shown off about 3 years ago, but is just now finally seeing the light of day. It’s also been re-branded as the EDG (pronounced ‘edge’) card, and if you haven’t heard of it before, it’s basically a high-tech business card that’s slightly thicker than a credit card, but features an LCD screen, a speaker and controls allowing it to play back videos and other multimedia content.

UPDATE: It turns out the EDG cards are in no way related to the rCard, which was a similar concept that never actually made it to the market. The EDG cards are instead produced by a company called Jump Lab who’d like to assure us their products are not only available for purchase, but “far exceed anything any former product could deliver.” We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

The cards include a mini-USB port for uploading content, and while users can also download additional PR material from the card to their PCs, they don’t have access to the video content, preventing them from re-purposing the card for their own uses. The EDG cards range in price from $17.50 up to $29 per unit, which already makes them a tough sell if you plan to give away more than one, but hopefully they’ll make a big impact on your client before the novelty wears off.

    fyi.. you have incorrecly indentified the EDG with the rCard, the EDG is jumplab.com and is NOT related to the company that supposedly manufactured the rCard and is a completey different product, the EDG has audio and video.

    Thank you for writing about Jump Lab's new EDG video card.
    However, we really wish you had not compared EDG with appears to be a non-existent product called rCard.

    With the exception of size, the products are completely different, although both are digital cards, only the EDG card has video/audio capabilities. It is designed and manufactured by a larger firm with global capabilities led by seasoned technology specialists, unlike the rCard which never seemed to make it to market.

    I hope you will post the proper information on your site so you're informed readers, who depend on you for first AND accurate market information, will feel confident that Jump Lab have the capabilities promised and our product (the EDG video card) is first-class, working, and AVAILABLE for purchase and far exceed anything any former product could deliver.

    Wait a minute something is not quite right here. Jet Parker was on a video promoting the EDG card on youtube and if I'm not mistaken Jet Parker was also the CEO OF CEOIQ the creator of rCards. Yet there's no connection???
