Bamboo Box Turns iPad Into An All-Powerful Cash Register

This cash register could be used in the House of Bamboo

I used to work as a the sole waiter in a restaurant where the cash register consisted of a wooden cigar box and a solar-powered Casio calculator. I’m an honest chap, and the chef was also the owner, so it worked just fine. But times have changed, and now there exists a modern alternative to our old cedar box. It’s called the Cashbox and it is fashioned from beautiful bamboo varnished to look like a hideous high-school craft project.

The Cashbox is little more than a wooden disguise for an iPad and assorted cash and credit-accepting hardware. A cradle up top holds the iPad, which can be swung to face the customer when they need to sign for something. And speaking of signing, there is a Square credit card reader in there too.

For those who like all of their money to go to the seller instead of giving a percentage to Visa, the box is also compatible with a Industry-Standard Hardware Vasario 1416 APG Cash Drawer, and the Star TSP 650 receipt printer (industry standard, apparently) can also be squeezed inside.

How much will it cost you to hide your beautiful tech inside a olde stylee bamboo box? $900, which makes our old cigar box seem like quite a sensible option.

    And someday you’ll see some old fart bring one into Pawn Stars, 2045 and reminisce about the good ol’ days of the klunky iPad generation :)
