ID cards on cellphones

Forgetting your ID card at home = $10 for going home
Knowing you have access to it via your cell phone = Priceless

"That’s the idea behind a plan being implemented at Japan’s Kanagawa Institute of Technology, where IDs will be stored on cellphones beginning this spring. The electronic IDs have several advantages over paper ones, including near-field communication functions like the ability to open locked doors and make purchases. " [via Engadget]
