It provides all of the services a regular machine does and should be useful for people needing cash before heading down the mountain for aprs-ski. https://www.springwise.com/canadian-ski-resort-now-ski-atm/

More secure passwords
Instead of requiring a typed password or a fingerprint, new security software asks the user to speak or mouth a password directly at a device's camera.

The transport infrastructure for City One (a city in 2050) is shown along with an example lunch trip. I don't see anyone driving cars. You could imagine this city being built in China where they already have maglev (magnetic levitation) trains. http://www.innovationfuturespecialist.co.uk/gallery/cityone.html

That?s the experience a major theme park in Nagasaki Prefecture plans to offer you by the end of this year. http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/03/06/business/huis-ten-bosch-inn-boast-spheric-sleeping-capsules-drift-isle-attactions/
