This touchscreen is actually a credit card

Your credit card is never safe. There are people out there, with all manner of devices that can rip the binary out of it. Time to make a card that is more secure then. And fortunately for us, Mastercard has some encrypted ideas up their sleeves.Over in Singapore, Mastercard has begun testing out a new version of getting some authentication done, with a card that contains an LCD and touchscreen keypad, for added security;

At present, banking institutions that necessitate a higher level of security for their online banking services require the use of a separate authentication token or device. The innovative 2-in-1 device, which combines the functionality of a standard payment card with a state-of-the-art security token, currently reflects the customer’s OTP.

In future, this card could incorporate additional functionalities and be able to indicate other real time information such as available credit balance, loyalty or reward points, recent transactions, and other interactive information.

I’ll be honest, I’d love to have one of these cards because it just looks so futurey and cool to me.
