MC10 and PCH Enters into Exclusive Partnership to Commercialize MC10’s Wearable Interactive Stamp Platform

MC10, Inc. and PCH have entered into an exclusive partnership to commercialize MC10’s Wearable Interactive Stamp Platform (WiSP™). The partnership will allow brands to develop a variety of consumer applications for the platform, which is a skin-worn, ultra-thin, stretchable and disposable stamp. When paired with a smartphone, tablet, or near field communication (NFC) reader, the WiSP platform enables a variety of consumer applications, such as cashless payments, hotel room access, event registration, interactive experiences at amusement parks, sporting and music events and VIP experiences. The WiSP platform can also be used in clinical environments to transmit important patient information and streamline procedure flow. PCH will work with third-party brands to customize the technology and develop new consumer applications. The smart stamp was first commercialized in conjunction with L’Oréal as the stretchable electronic designed to measure individual UV exposure. L’Oréal will retain exclusivity for applications of this technology in the beauty domain. The stamp leverages NFC technology to enable a variety of interactions between brand and wearer. By combining cloud analytics with the WiSP platform, brands can deepen their understanding of consumer behavior. To maintain the security of the stored information, the breathable, waterproof stamp is designed to tear and become unreadable upon removal.
