    Default Swedish airports use retro video games to collect spare currency

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/24/travel...ade/index.html
    CNN)Leave it to the country that gave the world IKEA and ABBA to come up with the most ingenious way on the planet for travelers to get rid of spare currency after a flight. Fliers arriving at Sweden's two biggest airports, Stockholm Arlanda and Goteborg Landvetter, can now kill time while waiting for their luggage by playing video game classics "Ms. Pac-Man," "Space Invaders" and "Galaga."


    Best of all, the machines in the "Charity Arcade" are custom-made to take coins of any currency, whether it's yen, euro or pounds, and all the money is donated to the Swedish Red Cross.

    "The Charity Arcades is a way for us to emphasize our partnership with the Swedish Red Cross in a creative and inspiring way," says Michael Persson Gripkow, marketing director at Swedavia, Swedish Airports.
    "The travelers get a fun retro experience at the airport and at the same time they have the opportunity to contribute to the important work of the Red Cross."
    We just have one suggestion for Swedish Airports that would make the Charity Arcade a tiny bit cooler.
    Could you bring in a few pinball machines?
