My Virtual Boyfriend

Illustration for article titled My Virtual Boyfriend

Don't you wish your dreamboat boyfriend whispered sweet nothings in your ear every time you saved your pocket change? Well the Japanese have (once again) created a solution to a problem we didn't know we had: The Handsome Man Bank. The piggy bank (or Ikemen in Japanese) has a selection of 5 different cartoon hunks who whisper romantic phrases when a person adds money (ex: "Can I rub your shoulders?"). And though the $75 contraption also doubles as an alarm clock, it does not vibrate in any way, making it totally useless in terms of actually satisfying single gals. [Inventor Spot]

I mean, kudos Japan for noticing that women save less than men. But, you know how many times I would have to fill up that Man Bank before it would pay for itself? So...yeah. In the end, not so practical as far as actual *saving* is concerned.
