Australia's new A$5 bill is so high-tech vending machines can't handle it, but no problem — here's something else you can do with all that spare cash.
In a video posted by the National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA), NFSA education manager Cris Kennedy uses the new plastic note to play a record of "Brit's Blues" by Red Norvo and his orchestra, rather than a record player stylus.
The NFSA is at pains to point out they are not playing an official collection record — and they can't guarantee it won't damage your own vinyl should you give it a try.
The note also has special tactile features to make it accessible to the Blind community — is there anything this bill can't do (besides buy you a can of Coke)?
