The highstreet Cash Machine is to get a fully interactive makeover with the launch of the MAX BOX, a new ATM that is currently rolling out across the UK.

Not content with just offering you the chance to get to your cash or top up your mobile phone, the new devices will be a multi-function two-screen terminal that combines a traditional ATM function with a raft of additional retail services - transforming the humble "hole in wall" into a standalone "digital shop".

Features include the ability to print digital photos, order flowers for next day delivery, play interactive Sudoku, top up you mobile and download ringtones, games and other mobile content.

The MAX BOX also has a digital jukebox facility that carries a staggering three million digital tracks - including every UK top 40 hit since charts began. In addition the kiosk streams third party advertising, runs sales promotions and can turn any host venue into a free Wi-Fi hotspot.

Expect those long queues to get even longer.
