Cash machines are so 20th century, you need Gold to Go™

30 September 2010

There's something wrong with the world right now. Actually, there's quite a lot wrong with the world and there aren't enough years left of civilisation to list it all. But here's another example to stick on that list; an ATM machine that doesn't pay out cash, but gold bars. Gold bars. From a cash machine. We shit you not:

Bitterwallet - Gold to Go

Yes, residents in Las Vegas and Florida will be able to punch in their PIN and scoop up their 1, 5, 10 and 28 gram (1 ounce) bars, with the machine checking the international price of gold six times an hour. We can't wait for these Gold To Go machines to reach the UK - when the revolution comes, we'll be snug in the Bitterwallet bunker with our assets secure in gold and tins of rice pudding.

It may not be as wrong as this, but that doesn't make it right.

    I think they've had one of these machines in Dubai airport for a few years now so it's not that new. You won't be saying it's mad when all the major currencies are massively devalued in the coming years through rampant inflation, though. ;)

    Yeah I saw this on the news a few weeks back - they were installing them in some Dubai hotels

    MrRobin is right - soon everyone will want gold

    Gold? - small change! Can us whales you get our Rhodium in Vegas? iridium is so passé and comes in at 22.65 gms/cm3 - which is awkward.

    @Mienaikage - Twat This story is bit old don't you think? Sky news already raped this peace to death when it opened in Dubai.
