The Future Piggy Bank

March 10th, 2011

“The Future Piggy” Bank is project made by Wang Chao, Maggie Kuo, and Jordi Parra, at the Umeå Institute of Design, in Sweden. In just a few days, they made this mock-up of piggy bank that accepts credit cards. By using very simple components like an arduino board, a sensor and an iphone as a display, they were able to create a piggy bank which behaves like a Tamagotchi. If you don’t feed it with a credit card it will become sad and the other way around. Very nice work!
