Today, on April 1, Google announced Google Wallet Mobile ATM, a device that lets you get cash from your smartphone, ATM style.
This image pretty much says it all:
Google explains in a blog post:
The mobile ATM device easily attaches to most smartphones and dispenses money instantly and effortlessly– forever ending your search for the nearest bank or ATM. Just type in your personal pin code on your cell phone and access all your cash from the palm of your hand.
The Google Wallet Mobile ATM technology allows you to enter the amount of money you want to withdraw directly in your phone or use voice-activated dispenser.
Google notes that the product does some things that even traditional ATMs can’t do, such as dispensing rare two and fifty dollar bills, and even “more practical” one dollar bills.
One huge bonus of using Google Wallet Mobile ATM over a traditional ATM is that when your device is low on funds, a self-driving, armored, hybrid vehicle will be alerted and dispatched to your location.
Wow, Google is really making our lives easier these days. First Google Now, and now this.
