Credit Card Piggy Bank

What an interesting concept. The idea is simple, instead of filling your piggy bank with coins or bills you swipe a credit card in the slot instead.

Whenever you slide your card through the reader in your ceramic pig, it connects to a nearby computer via Bluetooth. The software on your computer will connect directly to your bank and some predetermined amount of money will be credited to your account.

The designer also predicts that Credit Card Pig Bank could be used in malls and stores for collecting charitable donations.
