    These look pretty cool, and I have to admit, if there was a real-world application (ie: debit card or something), I'd probably have one. Is anyone making these? And would it be possible to use something like this as some form ofr debit/credit card?

    forgive my ignorance if this has already been addressed.

    Cool idea. I don't have experience with actual mag-stripe keys, but it seems to me if someone has a reader and a writer they could read the strip from one card and write it to another. For this to work you would have to mail (snail) your cred/deb card to the maker, have him transfer your data to the CTU card, then return them both to you.

    That would turn a lot of people off to that aspect of this prop.

    yeah, I suppose it would. Also the high cost (A writer is about $500 on ebay) wouldn't be attractive either.

    oh, well.

    Coming from the banking perspective, I dont think your bank would like that at all.... duplicating account information onto an unoffical card attempting to be passed off as a debit card... very questionable.

    Just my 2 cents

    BTW, I love that keycard and if anyone thinks of making one, I would purchase it.
