I'm not sure if everyone is familiar with the kiosk computer that was donated recently, but its a touch screen 27inch computer running a micro-atx and bill reader of the standard variety with built in card reader and interface board. It really looks badass.

I believe I heard people are going to turn it into a bitcoin exchanger. I say why not make it multi function and write an app that accepts donations too? You could even make it a game or something. That thing would be a killer replacement for the donation box. The cashbox on that thing is pretty much as secure as the unit is. :D
