Abstract
(EN)
A device and method is disclosed for promoting the selection and use of a credit card. The device and method add a feature to a credit card which is intended to attract a consumer's attention and motivate him to consider selecting the credit card. The device includes a sensor which is adapted and configured to sense a predefined physical change. The sensor is in communication with a driver circuit, which is in turn in communication with a transducer. When the sensor detects a predefined physical change, the driver circuit produces at least one driver signal for a predetermined amount of time. The transducer is adapted and configured to emit at least one perceptible output signal in response to receiving the at least one driver signal.

L'invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé qui permettent de promouvoir le choix et l'utilisation d'une carte de crédit. Le procédé consiste à ajouter à ladite carte une caractéristique conçue pour attirer l'attention du consommateur et le pousser à choisir la carte de crédit en question. Le dispositif comprend un capteur qui est conçu et configuré de façon à détecter une modification physique prédéfinie. Le capteur est en communication avec un circuit d'attaque, lui-même en communication avec un transducteur. Quand le capteur détecte ladite modification physique, le circuit d'attaque produit au moins un signal d'attaque pendant un certain laps de temps. Le transducteur est conçu et configuré de façon à émettre au moins un signal de sortie perceptible en réponse à la réception dudit signal d'attaque.
