Inventor. In the decade of 1970, he designed a portable object that was including a microchip as mean of payment or of identification. His invention resulted in the creation of the microchip cards or smart cards used not only in credit cards, is used too in a large number of applications. This technology has evolved to such embodiments like "Navigo", a contactless card, which is used to circulate in the Paris metro, or SIM cards used in cell phones. He filed the first patent of the smart card in 1974 and it took him eight years to convince bankers and other industrial utility of his invention. His perseverance has won because the chip has become a social phenomenon on a global scale.
He was also writer: under the pseudonym Laure Dynateur, published "L'aide memoire du nouveau cordon bleu" (the new Notepad cordon-bleu), a cookbook that promised "2,000 new ways to surprise your guests".
