    Carte à puce (“Smartcard”) was an exhibition at the Musée des arts et métiers, Paris:

    Invented in the mid-1970s, industrialised in the mid-1980s and widely used from the 1990s onwards, the smartcard has changed our daily lives and gradually become a ubiquitous object.

    It has changed our ways of paying by incorporating an electronic component into pre-existing payment cards, and our ways of communicating by enabling the deployment of the mobile phone, now used by billions of people.

    Although a complex object to produce due to the many different technologies it comprises, in 2015 8.8 billion cards were produced worldwide!
