Subject: ATI New Money identifier
I would like to briefly describe a new device that I just purchased that I think many of you might find useful. It is the iBill talking Money identifier from Orbit Research. The ibill is the only money reader I have used so I can't compare it with others but it is very small, relatively inexpensive and quite easy to use. It easily fits in a pocket or purse so it is very portable. It runs on one tripple A battery. The front of the iBill has a slot for inserting a bill. You insert a bill by pushing the short side into the slot. It doesn't matter which side of the bill is up or which end you use. The ibill has a button on each side which have identical functions. Insert the bill, push either of the buttons and the bill is read in about one second using a female voice. The speech has three volume settings which can be adjusted by pushing both buttons. In addition to speech, it also identifies bills by tone patterns or vibrations. this could be very useful in a noisy place since the volume is not very loud even at the highest setting and also gives you privacy. If you use the tone and vibration settings, you need to learn the tone or vibrations patterns but they are very easy to learn. For example, a $1 bill has one low tone or one short vibration, a $2 bill has two low tones or two short vibration, and a five uses three low tones and three short vibrations. Higher denominations use the same pattern but with high tones and longer vibrations. The highest bill it will read is a hundred dollar bill. You cycle between the modes by pressing both buttons until you cycle to the one you want to use. the cost is $99.00, which is cheaper than some of the money readers on the market. Unfortunately, the demand is far outstripping the supply so you may have to wait several weeks to obtain one. It is also being sold by some of the mail order companies but supplies are still short. So far, I am impressed by it but i haven't used it much yet, having just gotten it today. I will be bringing it to camp for those who want to see it. I guess that description wasn't so brief after all. John
