Checkbooks are a pain to carry around. And if you write multiple checks daily, you don't want a bunch of single blank checks folded up in your wallet. So this would be a checkbook about the length and width of a credit card, with few checks, so it'd be thin enough to fit comfortably in a wallet.

       Checkbooks are pain at all times I reckon. Particularly when you are in a supermarket queue and you get a housewife with full trolley, the checkout operator is in training and you are in a hurry to go toilet. Just happened to me today. What is wrong with cash or eftpos card or credit card, none of these does not take too much space.

       Some people prefer checks.   

       I have to say though, I sometimes write too big to fit it all onto a normal sized check.

       And some people don't have electricity or running water.

       I like this. I think it is perfectly halfbaked idea.   

       I don't like taking my chequebook - I'd rather not pay by cheque, but the fact is that sometimes a cheque is required (although less and less so). A miniature chequebook, with a more rigid back to aid writing, is a fine idea.

       I like this, and you could possibly implement it yourself. I remember reading something about the legal aspect : Someone had written a 'check' on the side of a cow, and it was still legally acceptable. So in theory, you could design and create the cheques yourself. +

       /insert bad joke/   

       Zbigniew Grdzlap was a midget Czechoslovakian double agent during WWII. Unfortunately the Nazis found out and he was forced to go into hiding. Hence he turned up at the Swiss embassy and asked "Excuse me, can you cache a small Czech?"

       you could try writing a check on a miniature cow [see links]. Still too big for your wallet though.
