I've got an idea and it's something I'd like

I've had an idea about how to deal with cancelling your cards if your bag/wallet gets stolen.  Even if you can remember the contact numbers for all your bank card, there's a chance your phone has been stolen, it always seems to take ages to get through.  You might be a member of one of those services where you only have to call one number, but that costs.

What if you could have something the size of a button you could clip under the collar of your coat? It would be the size of your thumb print and locked to your thumb print only you would set it up so that when you press it with your thumb and hold it for 3 seconds it will flash green and will have messaged your bank to instantly put all your cards on hold.  You follow it up with a phone call within 24 hours that either cancels or removes the block.

I don't have the connections or wherewithall to suggest this further but if anyone could pass this idea on I think it'd be a very good idea and would save banks/credit card companies money.

Personally, I'd probably get so sick of forgetting which coat it was on / to move it to the cost I was wearing that I'd end up either leaving it at home or, um, putting it in my handbag....
