a good idea

Just put a smart card chip and the pin code entering mechanism on the card (or authentication token. It doesn't necessarily need to be a "card"). This way you don't have to trust the ATMs. (Or any other device you don't control. How many times do you buy stuff using your credit card?)

Commonwealth Bank in Australia does something like that. They have a feature in their iOS/Android app that lets you withdraw cash without a card. It generates a code on the phone and also sends you a 4 digit code via sms. Then you enter both codes to their nearest atm. Good for when you've forgotten your card or the atm looks dodhy.
