From Quirky and GE comes the Wink Porkfolio Smart Piggy Bank that is guaranteed to make saving money fun for children and adults. The Porkfolio connects to your home network via Wi-Fi and to your Android or iOS smart device through the Wink app to let you set savings goals and then track your savings in real-time after each added coin. This intelligent piggy bank recognizes each coin put into its belly so that it can accurately tally up your change to provide you with the balance digitally rather than having to empty it all out to count manually. The Porkfolio Smart Piggy Bank is great for adults but perfect for children as it makes saving change fun when its nose lights up after each added coin and educational thanks to its simple-to-use app that allows a child to visually see their savings grow. It can hold up to $100 in quarters and because we’ve all been a victim of some missing change from our piggy bank or coin jar at some point in our lives the Porkfolio comes with an accelerometer. The built-in accelerometer is designed to protect the change in the Porkfolio’s belly because it will instantly alert you with a notification on your smart device any time it is moved.
