This Bosnian musician installed a card reader
on the side of his accordion
LOCATION: Banja Luka, Bosnia-Herzegovina
(SOUNDBITE) (Bosnian) MUSICIAN, ZELJKO DJAKIC, SAYING:"I came up with the idea for a payment terminal because people at parties and festivities often joke that they are pulling a card through the accordion bellows. So I decided to outwit them so that if they really want to tip me for music, they can do it through a POS terminal, where they also get a slip with the amount of the tip."
Djakic also installed three microphones on his accordion
and a smartphone to play music from the internet
(SOUNDBITE) (Bosnian) MUSICIAN ZELJKO DJAKIC'S WIFE, BILJANA DJAKIC, SAYING:"People laugh when they see it all, they ask what is next after three microphones and the card terminal?"
(SOUNDBITE) (Bosnian) MUSICIAN, ZELJKO DJAKIC, SAYING:"By profession I am an electronics engineer, service technician, but music is my love and my hobby. It is a great joy for me when I see people enjoying themselves at parties, made happy by music I play."
