We were pointed to a Kickstarter project for a new iPhone accessory called the Franc. As the Kickstarter project describes, many people keep wallets in their pockets with several credits cards, but, in reality, there are only a few essential cards that we need to carry everywhere we go. Since, these days, many people take their iPhones with them everywhere, why not keep your most essential cards strapped to your iPhone? The Franc does just that in an intuitive manner.

The Franc is comprised of two seemingly well-built components that snap onto the back of your iPhone. As you can see in the video above, you simply slide your most important cards between the Franc and the back of your iPhone. The creators of the product say a version for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S will be ready to go at the end of September – if funded. A version for the next-generation iPhone design will be ready a couple of months after that.
