RumbaTime Perry Go lets you check in and cash out

We foresee a time in the not too distant future when all things will incorporate more than a single function. No longer will we just use a fork, but it will be a digital thermometer too, to warn us if our food is too hot. Our shoes will include pedometers, our hats barometers.
