ATMs to defend themselves from attacks Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) may soon be armed with a mechanism that would spray hot foam in the face of the attacker if he tries to force it open. With the number of attacks on ATMs increasing in recent years, the new technique may be particularly well suited to protecting ATMs or cash transports. Researchers at ETH University in Zurich have developed a special film that triggers an intense reaction when destroyed. Sachin Karpe explained that while protective devices that can spray robbers and banknotes already exist, these are mechanical systems that are not very expensive and are less prone to malfunctions.
