People are pretty down on banking right now. While we can’t help add money to your account, a company called Etronika is hoping to inject a little life into the banking experience, via the Xbox Kinect. 

According to Wired, the Lithuanian software company has created a Kinect-based banking experience that allows users to manage accounts with the wave of a hand. There are plenty of other ways to interact with the system, with claps and finger swipes.

Is this really necessary? Of course not. While we’d rather have a way to drop bank fees and increase the number of zeros at the end of each statement, this is probably the closest thing you’re going to get to fun when it comes to online banking.

Take a peek at the video below and see if this is something you’d ever consider using.
