Treasure

Treasure is a device that aims to negotiate the gap between impulsive and rational spending.

By providing an extra layer of authentication for certain purchases, Treasure hopes to encourage users to second-guess the frictionless spending incurred through ‘one-click’ buying and contactless transactions. Treasure is based on a handheld device that fits easily in the user’s pocket. The device requires a pattern-based authentication that changes each time, adding an extra challenge to the automatic reflex associated with PIN codes. Through an accompanying app, Treasure also enables the user to set financial plans and track spending, highlighting your ‘triggers’ for impulse buying in the process. Treasure helps users manage their finances, while confronting the dangers of frictionless shopping.
