Proverbial Wallets Save You From Yourself

In the midst of the shopping season, it’s easy to get carried away with your spending. But imagine if your wallet was connected to your bank account and snapped shut when your balance was low, inflated when you have money and deflated when you are poor, or buzzed every time a transaction is made. That’s the idea behind the Proverbial Wallet project out of MIT.

Of course, many of us do a lot of our shopping online without ever needing to open our wallet, so the next step would be a monitor that snaps shut on your fingers when you drop too much cash on Amazon.
