There may be no shortage of wearable payment options on the market, but one handy man has decided to opt for something a little more personal, and time consuming: dissolving his credit card and putting the RFID chip in a home-made resin ring.
Although still largely seen as a novelty, wearables have begun to gain traction in recent years, with people making contactless payments using everything from Apple Phones to keychains to jackets.
Now, a member of the instructables website has posted a guide to making your own contactless bling. All you need is a second card, a soldering iron, resin, 3D printer, and some patience.
To make your ring, first up ask your bank for a replacement card, dissolve it in acetone, take out the RFID chip and solder a new antenna to it. Then, print a ring inner frame, glue the chip to it and put it in a ring mold before filling it with resin.
You can now make contactless payments without having to get your wallet or phone out of your pocket.
