That’s also unlikely. I mean, anything could happen. We could all be hit by a giant meteor tomorrow and be put out of our misery. Most people accept that has a low probability of happening, though.
Purewrist had to spend a lot of time, and pay a lot of money, to get their device to pass EMVCo certification. Now that they have that stamp on this product, there can’t be any variability or changes made. It has to be exactly the same as the test product. Otherwise they have to go through the whole process again and spend a good chunk of time and a not insignificant amount of money to re-certify their new device. That’s one legitimate benefit of the EMV mafia, consistency.
Exactly what I just did
I’m trying to think about what the best location to install is for interacting with payment terminals…
Knife edge seems like it might be the best? or actually on the forearm rather than hand might be least awkward. Unless it could be read through the hand, a thumb-pocket install feels like it’d be awkward to twist your wrist around for.
Today sucked, got some news that I don’t know how to process emotionally, and not sure I ever will
So… time for some bad decisions…to cheer myself up
It’s not that expensive
3 years sucks, but maybe something better will be out by then…bleeding edge means having to settle sometimes I guess, plus you never know what 3 years will hold
I don’t think I care about the fees because I’ll likely spend 250 a month, and wont get charged anyways
My guess is the effect will be negligible, if at all.
I know you have ordered it, if you do get the conversion, there is nothing stopping you from doing your own tests with positioning and proximity BEFORE finalising on the position.
But I don’t see it being an issue.
xEM being LF and Payment terminals are all HF, so there should only be one field, and that will be interacting with your FlexPure, with maybe minor distortion from your xEM.
We have even seen Amal surprised by mag field results, and also predictions blown out of the water
How good would it be if we had glasses that could see magnetic fields?
I had one idea once, to map out RFID fields: mount a small tuned tank coil onto a robot arm, get the robot arm to scan the volume above the EM field source slowly, and read the voltage across the coil. Given enough time, if the field doesn’t change, you should get a fairly decent 3D representation - at least for the one orientation the coil was presented at.
