PostHeaderIcon Eye-Popping Makeover for the C-Note

Ben Franklin is getting an uber high-tech makeover! Starting in 2008, he’s going mobile. Okay, that sounded better in my head.

In all seriousness, the United States $100 bill is the one most counterfeited outside the country and the Treasury is aiming to put a stop to it.

The new $100 bills, which are expected to hit the streets in 2008, will feature a microlens technology that will make it appear as though Benjamin Franklin is moving when the bill is moved. This founding father will appear to move from side to side when the bill is shifted vertically, and seem to move up and down when the bill is moved horizontally.


USA Today article about the changes.
