Google Maps embedded in ATM Machine

This is the first time I saw this, Google Maps embedded in an ATM machine of “La Caixa”. I don’t know how long it has been there and I’ve been living in Barcelona for almost 10 months now and use these ATM machines often. I was planning on buying some tickets for a concerts using one of these “ServiCaixa” ATM machines of La Caixa. I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I decided to go into the Help (ayuda) section of the machine. There I found the ability to look for closest service centers of La Caixa. As you can see on the picture, this was implemented with the help of Google Maps.
Cool to see Google Maps embedded in Kiosks and such. I read about embedding Google Maps before, offering directions and Coupons at gas pump stations, but other than just the reports I didn’t see any real-life implementations.

If you know of some more examples, please post them in the comment section!

    This can never be implemented in Hong Kong where queues in ATM are so common that, you’ll get loads you stares if you stay in front of a machine for more than 1 minute.

    @keith,
    haha, I can imagine. In the Netherlands it would be the same in most of the places.

    But in Spain there is a lot of ATM machines on every corner. And they are not only used to get money.

    Thanks for dropping by!
