Cool Looking Business Card with LCD Screen

Paper business cards are boring, everybody has one.  You need something that gets attention when you hand out your business card.  Today’s idea is to make a business card with a small LCD screen displaying your information continuously.  It also operates on solar power just like a calculator.  Maybe it could have a calculator built into the back so people would keep your business card in use all of the time as a calculator.  So the next time your potential client was adding up a few numbers she would think of you, her favorite vacuum salesman.

    This is really cool. This will be quite easy to do. You would need to think about activation (a push button), The solar power will be difficult to do. A solar cell that small would not have enough power. Most likely you would need a lithium rechargeable battery and solar cells charge it. Also the solar cell would probably be really big, so it would have to go on the back, and also add to the thickness.

    I developed a business card with an LCD screen in it if you’re curious (
