I feel like the cost for most places to implement them would be higher than the savings they would get from them

The costs are so low in comparison to the savings that all vending machines and self-checkout kiosks are basically already checking your money for forgeries.

What if they invent a counterfeit cash register

I went to a carnival and someone used counterfeit bills and he didn't check when he was supposed too. The boss was yelling at him all crazy in Spanish. Sounds useful but how would you invent it?

Simple and cheap detectors Already exist.

They check for the magnetic ink used in locations on the the bills and use UV light to check hidden features.

Personal detectors are as cheap as $30.

I don't believe so, no. It may be a solved question, but it is a concern still, especially for registers that are staffed by people. I can imagine solutions there, but they'd probably just be replaced by self-service kiosks where one staff member can handle eight or so kiosks that are already automatically checking money.

"How are you?" is a silly question.

I are nothing.

OT. I'd say 9/10 grocery stores in Norway already use machines like that. It spits coins and bills right back out if it doesn't meet the requirements. Red lights doesn't go off and Navy SEALS isn't on standby to inflict hemorrhoids. You just have to go to the bank with it, and if it's fake or broken beyond repair you've lost money. That's on you.
