The Nurun Lab is working on an ethnographic study about people’s relationship to money. At the Lab, we believe that the best insights come from human reactions, so as a side project we put together a prototype of a bill payment gadget to gather user feedback. The Bill Manager was built in response to a perceived void in the marketplace. Currently, there is no device that marries the practicality of automatic payments with the reassurance and sense of control that comes with making manual payments.
What do you think? Would you ever use such a device? And if so, where?
