The genesis of saving money isn’t a complicated one: get piggy bank, grow up, open bank account. But in today’s digital world that just doesn’t seem fitting. Zillion’s ‘Touch Screen ATM’ gives all the money lessons your kid will ever need to become the next big time banker Mommy and Daddy always dreamt of. This little digital piggy holds up to $999.99 and accepts real coins and bills – although I am not sure how much actual, physical money it can hold. Kids can make deposits, withdrawals and check balances by interacting with its touchscreen by finger or included stylus. To insure that your child understands the value of a bank account, a checkcard and PIN are required to access the cold hard cash.
Available here for $70.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
