Painment

A Wearable Trying to Restore the Tangibility of Money in a Cashless Age

With the advent of digital currencies, we are losing touch with our finances. Swiping a credit card just doesn’t elicit the same feeling of loss as giving away coins and notes. Which makes us spend more money but spend it with less intent. This wearable tries to reconnect us with our spending habits by briefly tightening the strap around the wearer’s chest when a payment is made.
