Not only is it probably not possible, shouldn't he and his friend be picked up by the ATM's camera?

This film from 1991 is supposed to take place in (then) near-future of 1995, as John Connor is around 10 years old. The T-1000 also uses a computer in the police car to check John Connor's criminal record and foster home adress. So what is not (yet) possible in 1991 probably is in the fictional 1995.

@Marv, It's the Mindset/Mindset. I remember emailing the webhost about it, and he added it. @Tony, Oh yeah I guess the police computer wouldn't have been two bad as they did have car phones around then, so the Computer could communicate over that. Also if I recall it was just a simple simple terminal, so hardware for that in 95 wouldn't be too expensive especially with a single colour LCD screen. 68EC000 were cheap by then ($8), I guess you could use a cheaper Z80/6502 ?!
