Apollo Robbins to Demonstrate How Easily Your Wallet is Stolen and How Wocket Protects You from Identity Theft
SHELTON, Conn., - (http://www.financialnewsmedia.com News Alert) - NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXTD) and (NXTDW) ("NXT-ID" or the "Company"), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announces it has retained famous pickpocket, entertainer and security consultant, Apollo Robbins for the 2015 International CES debut of the Wocket(TM) biometric smart wallet.
Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID said, "An average of 13 Million people a year have their identity stolen and 44% of known causes can be traced to a stolen wallet or purse. The Wocket was designed to protect your identity by acting as your personal vault. It is only accessed by you through your personal voice biometric or PIN. Apollo seemed like the perfect fit to associate wallet theft and identity theft problems with our ultimate solution, the Wocket."
NXT-ID will showcase Wocket smart wallet at the 2015 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, January 6-9, 2015 at booth 21926 in South Hall 1, lower level (LVCC). The Wocket can selectively be used at the booth by media and invited guests to make purchases of brand paraphernalia, demonstrating first-hand how convenient and secure the technology is.
Apollo Robbins is a performer, speaker, consultant and one of the world's leading experts on pickpockets, confidence crimes and deception. A pioneer in the application of deception to operational environments, Robbins uses pick-pocketing and sleight-of-hand to demonstrate perception management, diversion techniques and self-deception.
Known as "The Gentleman Thief," Robbins first made national news as the man who pick-pocketed the Secret Service while entertaining former U.S. president Jimmy Carter. He has picked the pockets of more than 250,000 men and women. Forbes has called him "an artful manipulator of awareness," and Wired Magazine has written that "he could steal the wallet of a man who knew he was going to have his pocket picked."
Robbins has been featured in the New Yorker and in numerous publications such as New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He produced and co-hosted the National Geographic program Brain Games, which was nominated for an Emmy as an Outstanding Informational Series. His popular appearance on The Today Show is a YouTube favorite at more than 7 million views. The TED editors described Robbins's talk at TED Global 2013 as a revelation in the flaws of human perception. His latest project, a Warner Brothers film starring Will Smith, will open in international theatres starting February 2015.
