For many of us, Roland Moreno is a stranger, while his inventions are almost in our wallets, phones, tablets, etc. He invented and patented the concept of memory card or “smart cards” in France in March 1975. Of course, GemPlus, and later on Gemalto are now the world’s leading digital security company, serving three key markets: mobile telecom, secure transactions and security.
What most people do not know is that Roland Moreno was part of Macbidouille community, and was often visiting Macbidouille and its forum.
Roland belongs to this group of visionary people, whose ideas have changed our world, bringing high-tech technologies in our hands without noticing it.
Au revoir Roland.
