A technological limitation of many scan engines is a minimum read distance. Often this limitation is carefully hidden by a combination of placing the engine far into the housing and preventing any user from scanning an item too close with the housing size/shape. Here, the limitation is a approached from a different point of view. A loyalty/ID card is placed within a preset slide-in housing which is in turn incoprorated into the design as more of an impact-resistant exo-skeleton. A functional element and an aesthetic rolled into one.
