‘Money No Object’ to be displayed at The British Museum








Heidi Hinder’s Money No Object project, which partnered with Irini Papadimitriou at the V&A supported by Creativeworks London Creative Voucher scheme, is now set to go on display in the Money Gallery of The British Museum.

The project explores the future of currency and value, and uses wearable technology and touch to exchange money in a more sociable way. A handshake, high-five, hugs or a tap dance can transfer sums through gloves, rings, badges or shoes. Money No Object was launched as a donations system at the V&A’s Digital Design Weekend 2014.

Money No Object will be on display at The British Museum later this month, until May 2016.
