As if reading your bank balance is not painful enough. NDD have created a concept called Scrip: a concept with a provocative idea of using pain to make the user aware of how much they are spending.
"It’s a digitally connected, mechanical brass coin that you load with money like a MetroCard. And as you go about your day, paying for things via wireless NFC connections (like Apple Pay), it offers braille-like tactile feedback so that you recognize how much you’re spending.
"It’s a digital-physical, or a physical-digital object that’s enabling transactions akin to cash," explains NDD founder Gadi Amit. "This project was almost a paradoxical effort to approach interaction design from the perspective of, let’s do something inefficient that people really do have to pay attention to, that’s quite literally trying to stimulate the pain receptors in your body."
