Leave your wallet at home; wristband does the job

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The company behind Austin City Limits is testing technology that could let you leave your cash and credit cards at home when you go to ACL.

C3 Presents plans to unveil a wristband that syncs with credit cards next month in Chicago. Instead of swiping your credit card, a simple swipe of your wristband is all it takes.

C3 is rolling out the wristbands at the Lollapalooza festival in Austin. The success of that roll-out will determine if they’ll be used at ACL in October.
