Whatever...

A place to share stuff that isn't at all fintec related but is amusing, absurd or scary.

What's the oddest location for a bank machine you've seen?

If you take a look at these photos of Tate Modern you'll notice the flooring in the Turbine Hall is in a shocking state. They should get that fixed. But wait - look at the photo on the top right - what's that lurking by the wall? It's an Alliance and Leicester bank machine. Not what I'd call art. They could have at least cut it in half and glued it back together - badly - to fit in with the exhibition.

This seemed an odd place to find an ATM. Anyone seen any stranger ones?

Paul Penrose - Finextra - London | 13 December, 2007, 10:24 Well we did run a story on solar-powered ATMs for installation on the beach back in 2003. It was only a proof-of-concept although the NCR people supplied us with a pic of a machine in action. Given the current interest in environmentally-friendly banking, maybe this is an idea who's time has come.

How about the world's highest ATM?

There's probably room for a whole bunch of superlatives here: most dangerously located, most remote, most ancient  ...
