As we approach a cashless system, traditional saving rituals begin to decay. Pledge Identification Gateway (PIG) offers emotional incentives to save while representing the health of a virtual money box. Each PIG carries a unique QR code which is scanned with a smart phone to make a payment. The PIG then illuminates to reward the act, but slowly fades until completely dark, indicating that the money box has been neglected.
The GS1 defies the colours and textures, shapes and materials of conventional speakers. It aims to find a balance between form & function while remaining sympathetic to the processes of its manufacture.
