The swivelCard is a new type of "smart" business card, which was developed with professional photographers in mind. Made of regular paper, this revolutionary card doubles as a USB drive when folded in a certain way, and provides a link to your online portfolio when inserted into a USB port on your computer. What's more, a nifty analytics system allows you to access helpful information about your cards and how they are being used through a back-end software interface. Plus, remote access to your swivelCard gives you many opportunities to continue interacting with the card's recipient. "With the back-end interface you'll be able to log in to your account and remotely make changes to the destination," the inventors say. "This can be done individually for each specific card." For more information, visit the project's Kickstarter page.

It's pretty cool and funny.

But it's not really sensefull in 2014 because my Smartphone has no USB Connector and my Tablet has no USB Connector. And that's the Problem. I can exchange my electronic V-Card with a simple click on "send to" with my Smartphone.

If you want to share small Informations, the USB Port will not be the best solution.

But anyway, it's pretty coll and funny...

while it might be a cool concept (especially with the tracking/analytics) but the presentation is terrible not to mention usability and how about durability? Its says it made of regular paper, but can it be labeled with say your photos?

the best examples of great photo biz cards are ones with your photos on them and a url, phone number, and your name. Just look to the right and there is a advert for 500 full pic biz cards for 8.50 that will further your biz than this gimmicky thing. Yup phones and tablets don't use full usb ports , so either you fix your card to allow for actual photos and info on them and fix for mini, micro usb or hell QR code, or it'll never be used...
