As a serial networker and someone that has collected WAY too many business cards this new swivelCard definitely caught my attention. It’s one of the new breed of smart (fill in the blank) items that seem to be popping up all around us.

These cards differentiate themselves from ALL the others because it actually holds data, and no I’m not just talking about your printed info on paper. There’s a foldout USB stick that allows you to:

  • Host your website, presentations, pictures, and videos for your recipients. This allows you to lessen the steps between them and your content.
  • Gives you analytics to track how your cards are being used, where they are in the world, and more.
  • Ability to change content after the card has been given out.
  • Still share your info with people even if they don’t have access to a USB drive since there’s a QR code on the back.

How amazing/helpful is that!

They’re currently raising funds via Kickstarter, so if you want to change up your networking game you better put down some money so they can make these things. Here’s a snapshot of what you get for pledging:
