Today, there are some 1.7 million ATMs world-wide, including some in South Africa that will pepper spray you if it thinks you are trying to blow it up.
According to this story at WXII12.com, that while Chemical Bank customers seemed to like the ATM,
"... Chemical Bank managers weren't initially enthralled. 'If this new service proves to be of sufficient interest and benefit to our customers, additional installations will be made at other offices,' they noted coolly in 1969's annual report."
However, management seems to have kept its reservations to itself, as it advertised the new ATM this way:
"On September 2, 1969, our branch will open its doors at 9:00 a.m. and we'll never close again!"
