This is insane, you guys.

The future is here. No, really. This is insane.

In a move we can only liken to the advent of Amazon Go, Local Supply has partnered with VISA to create sunglasses that replace your bank card.

They're called 'WaveShades' and feature an integrated payment chip in the arm of the glasses.

Working much like a pre-paid VISA debit card, the sunnies can be pre-loaded with funds and used in conjunction with payWave.

...provided you don't lose them at a festival.

You can expect these badboys to drop in the near future.
