If a world without cash is right around the corner, then the folks behind the Slim Wallet are ready to cash in. The wallet, which just surpassed its funding goal on Kickstarter, is designed for the truest of minimalists. There are no fancy pockets or places to store even the smallest amount of small change. Rather, there is just a simple elastic pocket designed to carry anywhere from two to ten cards.

The main selling point behind the Slim is the material. According to the creators, “we observed that many of today's minimal wallets fail because the material (usually leather) stretches out leaving it unable to hold a smaller number of cards.” The Slim is designed to rectify that by using an elastic material. “Whether you carry ten cards one week and then two cards for the weekend, Slim will never stretch out or lose its ability to grip your cards.”

The Slim Wallet is the brainchild of brothers Aaron Melander and Erik Melander, who designed it to be compatible with RFID scanners, meaning you can store your gym membership or other cards in the wallet and not have to pull the card out each time you need to swipe it.

The initial batch of wallets is available in six different colors. Early adopters can purchase a white, neon yellow, neon orange, neon pink, navy or black wallet for US$25.

It's already been done...by Starbucks. It's wool, red (so you can find it) and holds about 8 cards and two well folded $20's just in case. The wool doesn't hold sweat, doesn't bleed red in your pocket, has a nice button to secure it, and costs $5. I bought mine for $2.50 and got two, just in case. My first one lasted 2 years. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-STARBUCKS-PEACE-Dove-Red-Knit-Gift-Card-Holder-/250996051127?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a7087ccb7#ht_2136wt_1186

Nowhere near worth $25. An aluminum or carbon fiber money clip is preferable.

It is a ok idea, but in the end it is a strip of 2" wide elastic and a bit of thread. I could buy two of these for $50 or I could buy enough material to make 150 of them. Kind of makes me wish my wife hadn't quit the craft show thing.

No photo ID window? I'm underwhelmed.

They want $25 for the top of an old tube-sock?
