Late last month, Resorts World Sentosa welcomed two automated teller machines (ATMs) that dispense items made of… pure gold.
Yes, you read that right. The precious articles offered are from PAMP, one of the top 3 Swiss refiners and producers of Swiss fine gold in the world, offered at 24K 999.9 purity –widely accepted as the finest of pure gold.
However, instead of plain, boring pieces of gold that are just blah, the variety of products range from pure gold bars weighing anything between 1 to 10g, to customised gold coins and fine gold memorabilia. Fancy, huh?
With the SMART Gold ATM’s large Touch Screen 3D display that allows for 360 degree rotation of the products’ 3D image, you can see what they look like before making your purchase.
The SMART Gold ATM also comes with an inbuilt ‘Artificial Intelligence’ that can make product recommendations based on your details such as gender, age group and recent purchases.
If you would like to gift your loved ones with the gold products, here’s what you have to do:
- Make your payment
- Enter the intended recipient’s email
- Record a video message using the camera on top of the SMART Gold ATM
The (very lucky) recipient then receives an email with a special PIN code and locations of the SMART Gold ATMs, where the gift can then be claimed.
If you would like to check out the two SMART Gold ATMs, simply head on down to either:
The Rotunda (between Hotel Michael and Crockfords Tower), where you can find it at the back of Fernando Botero’s Adam and Eve sculpture, next to the cash-dispensing ATMs.
Porte Cochere (right outside the Galleria) – if you lose your way, just look out for Salvador Dalí’s Space Elephant sculpture. Now that is surely going to be difficult to miss.
