Nothing high tech here - just a once in a lifetime visual. This is what $207 million dollars looks like. Supposedly, the DEA made a drug raid in Mexico and found this personal stash of cash. Never put all your stacks of $100 bills in one basket, I always say. Of course, maybe this is only a portion of their assets.

Implications - The flaunting of one's personal wealth may be nothing new, but in recent years it has grown to new heights. More than ever, people are more consious of displaying just how well-off they really are. When designing packaging as well as products themselves, companies should be conscious of this favouring of flashy designs that can be viewed within consumer society.
