SwivelCard is the Smartest Business Card Ever

swivelCard

Business cards just got smarter with swivelCard. At the outset, they look like typical cards. But fold it in half and push the tab at the bottom out, and it transforms into a fully-functional USB drive. The storage capacity is small, but you don’t really need more than a few kilobytes as it only serves to direct the recipient of the card to your website or portfolio.

The QR code on the back of the card makes it mobile friendly, too, in case the one who has the card doesn’t have a laptop or access to a computer at the moment.

Smart, isn’t it?

Mean Cards Unfold to Reveal Heartwarming Messages

Mean Cards_001

Sometimes, things aren’t always as they seem. A book with a boring cover might be the most interesting piece of literature ever written. A tough-looking guy might actually be the kindest, most soft-spoken guy you’ll ever meet. Cards with mean messages on the front might unfold to reveal words of wisdom and messages that’ll warm even the coldest of hearts.

The latter is what Etsy Shop FINCHandHare have created. Snarky, even rude, messages are printed on the front. However, once the card is unfolded, the true message is revealed to its recipient.

Keep Cards Like a Boss: Mini Briefcase Business Card Case

Mini Briefcase Card Case

This looks just like one of those briefcases that the girls on Deal or No Deal brandish until their number is called and they have to open it to reveal the amount within. However, the only thing you’ll find when you flip this open are business cards, because that’s the only thing that’ll fit inside it.

Pictures don’t lie, but they can be pretty deceiving. For instance, what you see above is actually the Mini Briefcase Business Card Case, which looks just like the regular-sized version at first glance.

Edilble Business Card Gives You a Boost, Leads You to the Right Direction

Edible Business Card

 

High altitudes do weird things to the human body, even if it might be one that belongs to a seasoned trekker. Dizziness, nausea, fatigue, headaches–these are pains you wouldn’t want to have to go through in the middle of a climb. That’s what the folks from the Kokopelli Backpackers hostel had in mind when they rolled out their edible business cards that double as anti-altitude sickness remedies.

First of all, it’s a business card, so all the hostel’s pertinent contact information are printed on it. Then comes the interesting part: each card has a detachable, edible section made from coca leaves that gives climbers an extra boost as they chew on it.

Play Tetris on the Coolest Business Card Ever!

Tetris Business Card

 

If you failed to make an impression in person, then the only chance you have left is to make an impression with your business card. Plain old cards are boring. The way to go these days are interactive business cards and Bateske Design definitely got it right with their Arduboy digital business card.

It’s essentially a miniature, Arduino-based card that lets people play Tetris on it. How they managed to cram an OLED screen, capacitive D-pad, A/B buttons, and a piezo speaker into the 1.6mm-thick card is a feat in itself.

Augmented Reality Gives Greeting Cards a Virtual Facelift

Augmented-reality greeting cards

Greeting cards have been around for decades. It’s time they got an upgrade, don’t you think?

That’s what tech company DAQRI is trying to do with their Gizmo Kickstarter project. They look like typical greeting cards…until you point your tablet towards it. Instead of seeing the plain card on your screen, it’ll literally come to life with a short but fun interactive animation. The cards can be customized depending on the occasion or event being celebrated, including birthdays, Christmas, and Valentine’s day.

Edible Anatomical Love: Valentine’s Day Cards You Can Lick and Eat

Edible Love Notes0

Give your significant other a card that’s unlike any other this Valentine’s: cards created by Emily Evans and Miss Cakehea that feature an anatomical heart in between two skulls that you can actually eat. The design is a far cry from the usual cheesy and heart-filled cards you normally find on the racks, what with the skulls and all. But you’ll agree that it’s a pretty sweet card, albeit unusual, once you take notice of the words on the banner being held up by the doves: ‘Amor Eterno’, which translates to ‘eternal love.’

The other thing that makes these cards so unusual is the fact that they’re edible. Each card is made from vegetable oil, water and potato starch, and while it might not be the tastiest Valentine treat you’ve ever had, it’s probably the quirkiest.
