Near-future Ikea catalog: the Internet of Things' flat-pack as a service

If it was the 1960s, the currency would be Galactic Credits, but I wonder what :- is?


Is that the abbreviation for gold-pressed latinum?


Now I want a Fallout: Ikea crossover.


Nothing quite so futuristic. It’s just the default representation of Swedish kronor, marking a whole unit amount. It’s in a way kind of old fashioned in that the öre, the Swedish cent or penny, is completely defunct for non-electronic transactions to the point that even the 50 öre coin was phased out in 2010, but the :- representation lives on alongside the equally common “kr” suffix on prices.


Tusen takk!
