Fraud-B-Gone: ATM Card Comes With Its Own Keypad

ATM_Card_with_keypad.jpgFor people whose paranoia leads them to believe that there are boogeymen actually living inside ATMs, this invention from Innovative Card Technologies and eMue Technologies lets them input their PIN—and presumably encrypt it—before they approach the machine.
