Perfect for those who don't want to carry too much cash, Japanese company Hashy Top-In has created the 'E-Money Band.'

Available to the Japanese public only, this gadget acts as a substitute for cash, coins and credit cards. As long as stores and vending machines carry Edy machines (an e-money system in Japan), all people have to do is scan the centerpiece of the band to pay. Users can store up to $600 in the band and it comes in five different colors. It's an extremely convenient invention that especially benefits joggers who don't want the extra weight of their wallets.
