  • So i watched these videos several days ago and today I'm on Facebook market place and found the exact same ATM for $300 working

    • It’s probably not EMV upgraded. The EMV upgraded ones are much more expensive. That it it was a crazy good deal.

  • It is really easily to understand intuitive how this machine works. I wonder how you are able to transfer all circuit diagrams by thought transference 😜 Can you shortly and exactly describe the way of electrons while using the ATM?

  • It's really cool! But I have question - does coin dispenser send something like "low amount of coins" error to ATM system, and transaction will not be proceed if there is not enough coins in your machine?

  • How are you guys getting all of these illegal non-line-of-sight drone recordings high over san francisco?

    Graham CantinGraham CantinIl y a 7 jours
    • @Strange Parts Seriously?? I can't even see the next building over in san francisco, how the heck are you guys doing it ;_; I'm down in campbell and assholes keep calling the FAA hotline, I'd love to be able to capture footage like you. Edit: Think I figured it out -- SF's a lot harder to get around and you guys probably have some kind of rooftop access to get LOS from. Sorry if it sounded like I was being accusing, it's just frustrating to spend so much on a drone, learn the laws, and you see stuff that looks like somebody's getting away with something you can't. "Why can't this be easier?" indeed. Cause there's always some jerk that ruins the fun for everyone -- like the card skimmers pinpad overlays that force these ATM pinpads to have high security. Good luck, best wishes with the next projects. Y'ever need a linux guy in the bay area, look me (Kamilion) up.

  • Oh man... So this was quite an expensive roller coaster ride huh?! :D Glad you got it running. And now, don't get me wrong, I don't wanna say that after all your hard work there is something wrong with it. But the wheel at the right wasn't perfectly aligned in the video. I figure maybe the stepper motor lost a step or wasn't homed correctly. So it may have been a one time thing. But if wheel is actually not aligned correctly you may wanna fix that (without breaking the ATM!).

  • When you were testing it and pulling money out, was it actually coming out of your account? So you were giving yourself your own money? And being charged for it? I guess you have to test it somehow though LOL.

  • This is pretty cool! But I don't get one thing, how does one can get their own ducktaped atm to be registered and online on banking network? I thought that would be pretty impossible unles you are certified banking technician and your atm is not custom modded and so on..

  • Does anybody else want to know what happens to the money they withdrew from their bank accounts when they didn't have any cash to dispense?

  • This is an awesome project! I design custom PCBs (not perfboard) for fun and I would love to tackle a project like this! A liget PCB would take up a bit less space since everything can be integrated and tends to be more robust. The only thing I would add (other than a change maker which you did in another video) is simply add a load cell (scale) under the quarter hopper so the processor will know by weight how many coins are available for use and take itself offline if it thinks there isn't enough capital in the machine to complete a transaction. I think it would be better if you made it so you could withdraw and win in $1 increments which would make use of the 10% transaction fee. Awesome video! Awesome idea!

  • So if Scotty used his bank card, and the money came out of the bank, does he have to repay himself because he loaded the machine?

    Paul McPhersonPaul McPhersonIl y a 9 jours
    • Not sure what you're asking, but here's a full explanation: Let's say he withdraws $20. The fee is $2, so his account will be debited $22. Then that money, minus a small slice of the service fee (let's say $0.10), is transferred to the account of the ATM operator. If that's the same account, then it ends up receiving two transactions: a debit of $22.00 followed by a credit of $21.90, so he would have only lost the $0.10 charged by the payment processor. The ATM operator owns the cash inside the machine, so dispensing it from the operator to the operator doesn't change ownership of the money (again, less the small slice for the payment processor).
