A fully realized "digital wallet" is inching closer to reality with Iowa's planned driver's license app.
The free app would display an image of an Iowa citizen's driver's license just like it would appear on a plastic card. It could be used anytime you would need a driver's license, such as for traffic stops, purchasing alcohol or security screenings at Iowa airports.
With the rise of services like Apple Pay and Google Wallet, smartphones could soon replace your traditional wallet. Iowa is also one of 30 states that lets drivers show proof of insurance on their phones. (Video via CBS)
