This polished silver digital piggy bank records the cash you feed it and displays the total on an LED screen. It aims to teach kids the value of a dollar, according to the manufacturer, and costs $24.95 at the Science eStore.
But oddly enough, the seemingly modern Pig E Bank Electronic Bank doesn't take dollars. It only recognizes pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. As RedFerret noticed, that's a lot of coinage needed to save for a new PlayStation 3.
Considering the U.S. dollar coin has big plans starting in 2007, what kind of hogwash is that?
