Maybe it's for little people?
I always thought it was a shame that machine cabinets like this (ATMs, Video games, information kiosks) don't come with a pull out step for the vertically challenged. It wouldn't be a complex engineering job (just a bit of metal bent to shape and a couple of slots cut in the case), and would seem to be low hanging fruit, but I've never seen one in the wild. Is someone sitting on the patent for it? Or are manufacturers just that unconcerned about accessibility?
This goes double for video game cabinets, which children are expected to use regularly.
 Sorry, I don't know what the current preferred term is. It seems like every time I switch someone tells me I'm an insensitive asshole because the term has some horrible negative connotation. I've been told that "little people" is extremely offensive because it makes fun of their size, but that person suggested that I used "dwarf" instead which has gotten me in trouble before.
