Card.io, Put your camera to fill the credit card for you

This could be pretty cool. You shop online and then finally enter the payment screen. Entering credit card information on a mobile or even web is painful. Card.IO is quite handy. They have both web and mobile API for developers. You could point your phone camera or desktop webcam and bang.. the card is filled for you. This can improve the checkout conversion rate a lot

From Card.io website,
" Typing in credit card info on a mobile keypad is slow, and most consumers don’t have separate hardware to swipe a credit card. card.io is trying to solve both of these problems: you just hold a credit card up to the phone, and card.io automatically reads the card information using the phone's camera."
