Arrow BMW develops new multifunctional smart key

BMW likes to be a leader in technology. And BMW technology is usually quite useful. Of course, only if you can figure out how to work the damn thing. Think iDrive.

But this smart key looks easy enough to use. All you have to do is keep it in your pocket.

What can it do?

Well, first off, it's a key. Though the press release doesn't explain this clearly, it likely acts like those smart keys that Renault has, which is a card you keep in your pocket and opens the doors automatically any time you are standing near the car and locks them as you walk away.

But this card can do much more than that. It can also be used as a credit card, or store electronic ticket information for bus, train or airplane travel. The card can also provide the driver with in-car access to a host of personalized services through BMW's ConnectedDrive. Personalized settings for the car, such as radio stations and address books for mobile phones, can also be stored on the card.

Sounds great. Let's hope it's as easy to use as it sounds.
