Portable magnetic stripe reader


I am looking for an engineer who will be able to produce items exactly like this:

Currently i need only one item in order to see the finished results. A person who can make such device and will present a sample (sketch) of his work will be offered a full time job from home or in our office in Europe with a salary of 1500 Euros at the probation period.

Features details

Bluetooth data access - The device can be accessed, configured and data can be downloaded wireless via Bluetooth through any Bluetooth enable computer. The range of the wireless communication is up to 100meters.

3 track reader - Reads all three tracks of the magnetic cards. The reader exceeds the industry’s standard and supports 75 to 210bpi density on every track. Swiping speed can vary from as low as 3ips ([url removed, login to view]) to as high as 100ips (254 cm/s).

Reads interrupted swipes in both directions - When a swipe is interrupted, the data that has been read is saved and analyzed by a highly efficient algorithm that is able to correctly interpret and display the data.

Ultra-compact design - The reader has been designed to be as small as possible.

Smallest size available in the industry today - It is the smallest wireless magnetic stripe reader available today ( 13 x 24 x 4mm ).

High noise immunity - The reader can withstand and read correctly near noisy PC monitors, cell phones, switching power supplies, etc.

High performance decoding - Reads badly damaged cards.

Stores up to 32000 cards - It features 2150kb of memory and the cards are compressed. For cards that contain only Track 2 there is enough memory to store 32000 swipes. When all tracks are used and are fully written, there is enough memory to store more than 8000 swipes.

Ultra low power consumption - Less than 2mA when idle and less than 3mA when a card is being swiped. This means that on a single charge of 40mA battery will run for 20 hours or read 48000 cards.

Low voltage operation - Requires 2.7 to 3.7 volts which makes it ideal to run on a single cell Li-Ion or LiPolimer rechargeable batteries. It will work with any power supply as long as the power requirements are met.

Every swipe is timestamped - Has a highly calibrated internal clock.

In other words I need a magnetic stripe reader which will be small (dimensions are stated above), portable(with own power supply which is stated above) and wireless e.g. bluetooth.
