S’poreans Invented Wallet That Self-Slot Coins & Notes, Raised Over 30X What They Asked For

Inventions are products and/or services created to fulfil a need or want in our everyday lives. And that’s what we came across when we were browsing through Kickstarter, a platform which helps creators make their project a reality.

The money problem

This ingenious product solved an everyday problem that we don’t even notice we have.

Do you have this experience before? You’re at the counter in McDonald’s and the cashier hands your change to you, both coins and notes together.

You struggle to fit in the money into their appropriate compartments, holding up the line behind you. And because you’re trying to rush, you drop your coins onto the ground.

KIN – World’s first wallet that sorts your notes and coins easily

And that’s what the creators, Singaporean designers, Chery, Ai Ling and Li Xue set out to solve.

Launched on Kickstarter on 1 Nov 2016, it has exceeded its goal of $4,000 by more than 30 times. As of 17 Nov 2016, 10:30am, the project has raised $125,225. 

And to be honest, you’ll be tempted to pledge after seeing what the project is all about.

No more sorting notes and coins by yourself

Because the wallet will do it for you. 

KIN is the wallet that separates your cash and coins in a cinch. Everything – yes, everything – goes in from the top. Coins are easily retrieved from the pocket on the side. KIN redefines the wallet experience by marrying the two compartments and combining them for a smoother wallet experience. KIN is no ordinary bifold – it is beautiful and stylish as it is functional. – KIN

Now, just grab everything and throw it into your notes compartment.

Coins can be taken out from a side pocket.

You can order your own KIN wallet through their Kickstarter project here, but note that the wallets will only be shipped out in July next year. But it’s still pretty darn cool, though, if you ask me. 

Guess their wallets are really footing the bills.

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
