Prototyping A [Monzo] Connected Piggy Bank

So Stuart’s now finished version 2 of the Pig eBank & it’s looking like the most complete product I’ve seen, that’s been built using the Monzo API so far :heart_eyes:

He’s already built (savings) Pots :eyes: & now the pig responds to voice commands :boom:

Simon’s a fan too!


That is amazing!!


I love this!! Are there plans to release in any way?

This is seriously cool. The bit at the end put a big smile on my face. The stuff people are doing with Monzo is truly incredible.

What is the cut off age for having one of these? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
