Here's a cool little discovery we found on Reddit!

A user by the name of NotIansIdea took to the message board yesterday to share his new piggy bank - an Xbox Series X style piggy bank! This was designed and 3D printed for him by his brother-in-law for his birthday.

Here's what he had to say about the gift, which apparently took 80 hours to design and print:

"With my birthday passing and the holidays coming up, I had been getting many questions about what I would like as a gift. All I really am desiring is the new Xbox, so I was just politely asking for money to go toward the purchase. My brother-in-law is an engineering student, so in lieu of money, he made the most thoughtful gift a gamer could ask for."

As you can see, it also lights up on the front - a neat touch! Lots of commenters have since praised the idea in the Reddit thread, including Xbox Live's Major Nelson, who classed it as "VERY cool".

If you fancy giving it a go for yourself, NotIansIdea also posted a link to the 3D files used for printing (one of which you can see at the top of this page), hosted at GrabCad. See how you get on!
