The Cyber Bank Personal ATM Promotes Saving Overspending

Spenders might get excited about the prospect of an at-home instant teller, but the Cyber Bank Personal ATM is actually better suited to promote the practice of saving money. The little desktop device has a built-in safe and anti-theft alarm, and only delivers bills when the equivalent value in coins has been deposited.

This gadget is the perfect piggy bank to help teach children of the value of putting cash aside. It can be controlled by a "banker" parent with password-protected settings that limit the size and frequency of transactions. The Cyber Bank Personal ATM system mimics the functions of a real automated teller machine with appropriate prompts and sounds. The personal ATM may guarantee more responsible treatment of funds at a real-life ATM in a growing kid's future.
