The Coin-u-lator is an independent living skills tutorial designed to assist individuals with cognitive disabilities in learning money skills. Resembling a hand-held calculator, this device features keys that resemble actual money (dollar bill, penny, nickel, dime, and quarter) rather than number keys, enabling those with limited math skills and no understanding of the decimal function to calculate amounts. The Coin-u-lator can be used to count money, track totals on potential purchases, or to play two money games. The matching game challenges players to match the amount shown on the display by pressing the combination of buttons to represent the dollar and coin amount. If the player is successful, the word "great" appears on the display and the unit says "Way to go!" If the player goes over the amount displayed, the display reads "Too much" and the unit says "That's too much. Try again." The second game, Coin Count, is similar, but it requires the player to match the amount on the display using coins only and the number of each coin selected appears on the display. The device also features an on/reset button, on off button, an "Oops" button, and a sliding volume key. POWER: Uses three double A batteries.
