We just got back from the 2012 South by Southwest Interactive festival. Over the course of eight days, hundreds of tech-enthusiasts took the Isis™ Mobile Wallet for a test drive. We also had the privilege of having cyber-illusionist Marco Tempest perform live at our booth. If you weren’t in Austin or weren’t able to swing by the Isis lounge or booth, check out this video to see the Isis™ Mobile Wallet in action or watch Marco put credit cards on his phone. You can also read about what Fast Company’s Co.Create and Entrepreneur Magazine said about Isis and other innovations showcased at the event.
