Got trouble finding the right bills? There may be a solution for that late-night purchase. Glow-in-the-dark cash.
The Consumerist reports on such a suggestion pitched by Korean designer Jaesik Heo.
Yanko Design suggests that such an invention may help in places like a dimly lit cab. “You can be a dork at times and hand out the wrong currency notes …,” the Web site reads. “Don’t expect anyone to rectify your mistakes … your loss is another man’s gain!”
Yanko Design suggests a soft glow, “just enough to ensure you hand out the correct note; nothing more nothing less.”
The Web site Change500.tistory.com features photos of the proposed bills.
The Consumerist cautions that such a “telltale glow could also alert anybody in the vicinity to the presence of big bills in your wallet.” It suggests being able to customize your colors as well “so that your big pile of Benjies (or Sejongs, in Heo’s example) would look like a pitiful stack of singles.”
Tomsguide.com writes that Heo and Lim Hojoon have also come up with a concept of a yellow light switch, which replaces numerous physical wall switches with a touch-sensitive control panel. The switch shows where various lights are located in the house to help the user find the right one.
