More on ATMs: Who Knew?

Oddly enough, I’m flipping through the November 2010 Fast Company, which arrived in my mailbox yesterday, and see an article on ATM design! Apropos of my post on ATM design from the other day.

According to the article they are focusing even more on aesthetics (by way of futuristic looks, apparently, but also by way of simplification) with these new machines. The article, ATMs of the Future Boast Sleek Consoles, makes the claim that ATM producers want to improve their product because ATM usage has been declining. However, I wonder if this is misguided given the fact that ATM use might be more a function of how many people are using electronic point-of-sale transactions instead of cash.
