Xiaomi is certainly not new to products for small Mi Fans and often uses its own platform crowdfunding to offer gadgets that really envy us adults. As we all know, Xiaomi uses this marketing method to help some startups grow, as in the case of the PUPUPULA brand that lands on the crowdfunding of the Chinese company with a bizarre smart piggy bank.
PUPUPULA is a lifestyle brand born in Beijing in the 2017. Their products have like mission that of offering a sort of time-saving so that parents can concentrate with greater quality at the time devoted to activities with their children. An eye that is also attentive to ecology as the PUPUPULA company chooses only safe and environmentally friendly materials, reusing waste from the production process and avoiding unnecessary extra packaging. Finally, the company has already won the IF Awards 2019 for the product Little Ben Clock, a wall clock designed to teach children how to read analogue time.
PUPUPULA is the new Xiaomi brand for small Mi Fans that offers a very smart piggy bank
And the piggy bank immediately recalls beautiful memories of when as little ones we were looking for the slot to insert coins and in some cases even banknotes, in order to increase our small finances. Well with the PUPUPULA smart moneybox all this is a mere memory as the gadget is a virtual piggy bank, which offers an IPS color display from 1,54 inches with 240 x 240 pixel resolution for displaying the user interface and other useful information.
Therefore everything will be based on virtual movements, a bit like it happens for the tranasazioni bancaie. In fact you need to install the proprietary application on your smartphone in order to keep track of the movements in and out of your smart piggy bank, which every time a deposit is made will come alive with lots of cheerful accompanying music, while when it will be done taking a sad face with the same sound of disappointment will accompany the action. A decidedly original and up-to-date way to teach children the value of saving and money.
The PUPUPULA money box is available in two colors, such as light blue and yellow, at a price of 399 yuan (approximately 52 euro at current exchange rates) with shipments beginning on 13 April date. The built-in battery (value not yet declared) allows an autonomy of 48 hours while the charging takes place in 2 hours via USB Type-C cable. Personally I find that PUPUPULA is a product that would be good for my personal finances too, who knows if I can save some money.
