Wallet that runs away to help curb spending!

New York: A Japanese company has developed a crafty wallet to keep your spending in check — if you are short on cash, it rolls away when you reach for it. The “Living Wallet,” developed by a Japanese company, syncs with a bookkeeping smartphone app called Zaim. It has small wheels on each sideand can roll away from you when you try to reach for it.
    The product has two modes depending on your cash: Save Mode and Consumption Mode.
    When you are running short on cash, and you try to reach for it, the wallet will slink away from you or spin around to dodge your hand,
‘New York Daily News’ reported.
    When you inevitably catch it and open it, the wallet will start yelling and asking for help. It has a built in sound chip that yells, “No! Don’t touch me! Help!” This may get you some stares and concerned looks.
    The wallet can even call or email your mother to discourage you from making an unnecessary purchase.
    However, if your bank balance is in the green and you have the extra cash to spend, the wallet will switch to Consumption Mode and encourage spending.
