10 cool gadgets we can't wait to get our hands on

They're not available here... yet

The coolest gadgets almost always debut overseas. But we'll get them eventually, and we can't wait

Feed the bank

Face Bank

The Face Bank lets you put your money where its mouth is. Wave a coin in front of the bank's eyes (actually light sensors), and it opens wide to swallow your loose change. Afterward, it looks so pleased that you half expect it to emit a contented belch. The thing would be even cooler (and creepier) if it spoke with the voice of Vincent Price - but alas, no.

Created by Japanese designer Takada, the $50 bank is available in eight colours and textures, from lemon yellow to brick red.

Availability: Japan only
