    Hi Robert,

    that’s an incredible find! To be honest I wouldn’t be suprised if there actually was a toy just like that. I mean there’s a Monopoly board game with a credit card reader, so why not something like that, right?

    Yesterday I started reading your book and so far I’m loving it. Now I can’t wait to get to the part where you talk about possible solutions.

    Definitely keep up the good work and greetings from Germany.

    Julian
