Near Field 'Random' Cash

Stick near field cash into any object and the oyster is your world.

"That will be £7.32 sir."

<empties pocket onto counter>
2 near field pound coins copyright [nrm]
1 plastic lozenge that looks like a paperclip with an embedded chip worth 2p
3 dice with embedded chips worth 10p each
and a 2 inch tall T-Rex worth 5 squid

"That will do nicely."


Cash could be a lot more fun if mints could be open source using smart chips.

       Can you spare a cup of tea with some change in it? [+]

       Hmmm...wooly hat with little zip-up pouch on the inside for the card?   

       I was thinking of inside a shoe, but as 52 year old I'd have to carry a small stepladder to get my foot up onto the counter.   

       So, most likely useful for ballet shoes users.

       Make an effort, [DD]. The person behind you in the queue, the one wearing the gimp mask and carrying a bag of cucumbers, is [Ian Tindale].   

       You have been warned.

       So, bartering with items with embedded chips that know their value? How does that work if their value changes with the market?

       // How does that work if their value changes with the market?//   

       How does it work now when the pound or the dollar fluctuates ? This idea is not about a currency but representations of coinage.

       I'm guessing hb acts like a refugium for the word "fungible".

       Interetingly, it also acts like a refugium for the word "refugium", which is nicely recursive.
