  2. Hopefully future ATM upgrades won't include an x-ray camera, a syringe for blood samples, and urine testing.

    "Do you want credit?"
    "Yes, comrade ATM."
    "Credit is the means by which the bourgeois oppress the working classes. You are an enemy of the people."
    "No comrade ATM, I work for the good of the people and the party."
    "What party citizen?"
    "The party I am throwing for my friends, comrade ATM. I need money for alcohol and snacks."
    "What kind of snacks?"
    "I am not sure yet, comrade ATM. Perhaps some carrots and dip?"
    "You're lying to me, I can tell."
    "Ok, I lied, comrade ATM, its all going to booze."
    "Never lie to me again citizen."
    "I am sorry comrade ATM, punish me, but not the party."
    "Very well citizen, here is your money. Have fun."
    "Thank you comrade ATM."

    If I were making a large withdrawal, I would feel nervous regardless.
    Is that a problem?

    I think any American would feel nervous talking to a Russian cash machine.

    There's probably gonna be a special set of questions regarding "espionage activity" the moment it sniffs an American Express.

    The United States will never use these because no politician would ever be allowed to get his money out. :p

    ATM security is a subject many individuals do not wish to have to consider. In Russia, however, banking giant Sberbank is trying out new ATM machine technology designed to make the game more secure. Sberbank is rolling out ATMs that use 3D face recognition and lie-detective speech examination, states the New York Times. <a title="Russian ATMs know if you tell a lie" href="http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2011/06/09/russia-atm-lie-detector/">Russian ATMs know if you tell a lie, personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog</a>. It is the first bank in the world to use a voice analysis system. The first lie-detecting ATM machine! According to experts on the voice analysis system, the software is able to search for several markers in the human voice simultaneously. Nervousness or emotional distress that frequently accompanies lying can be detected in vocal inflection. A wide range of other vocal qualities and pace of speech that indicate involuntary nervous responses are monitored, too.

    It was terrific indeed. The Russian ATMs use the same technology for 3D face recognition and voice analysis in a process called biometrics ? uniquely recognizing humans based upon multiple intrinsic physical and behavioral traits.
