SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME), a developer of patented payment card technology and in-card biometric products, announced today that it has created a sub-micro operating system for nano-computers.
The SmartMetric Intelligent Card OS™ is an operating system that unlocks new possibilities for software and app development for a payment card-sized device that has broad functionality, comparable to a smartphone or tablet.
"We've seen the evolution of computing move from mainframe, to PC, to tablets, and then to smartphones. Now, SmartMetric is leading the next wave of miniaturization with our SmartMetric intelligent card. Combining our patented nano-computing hardware with our sub-micro operating system, we believe we've created the next new device of the future and it's the size of a payment card," stated SmartMetric President and CEO Chaya Hendrick.
SmartMetric's operating system is designed to run on the SmartMetric intelligent card, which combines biometrics with patented nano-computing technology, the world's smallest fingerprint reader, an internal ARM 9 processor, processing power equal that of a PC, and up to 128 gigabytes of memory, matching the maximum memory capacity of current iPads.
Powered by SmartMetric's operating system, developers can now create never before possible apps that run on a payment card, for a broad range of functions including gaming, security, consumer, and industrial.
