Instead of a 4-digit number for your ATM pin, play a few rounds of simon with that machine. Let's see crooks get past this one.

       What's next? The Dance-Dance Revolution ATM?

       Sort of vegetarian once-removed, then. The spirit was willing, but the flesh was - actually quite tasty...

       Let me see if I understand this correctly...   

       You go up to an ATM. the ATM flashes a series of symbols (Red, Yellow, Green, Yellow, etc.) that you must copy. If you get it wrong, you can't use your own card.   

       Ten minutes later a pickpocket gets your card. He goes to the ATM. Because he is good at Simon (a now essential skill for pickpockets) he has access to your account?   

       Isn't this just an ATM machine that hands out your PIN to anyone with your card?

       A colorblind person will match buttons by their position (upper right, lower left, etc).
