Sounds fun, right? This special vending machine called the Hug Me just needs a hug to dispense a cool can of coke. No kidding! It doesn’t ask for money as other machines do.
Crabs in vending machines and that too alive is just something you can’t believe until you see for yourself! Well, it has happened in Nanjing, China where there’s a special vending machine that serves fresh Shanghai Hairy Crabs in plastic packages. The machine temperature is kept at 5 degree C so that the crabs stay in “hibernation”. By any chance if the machine vends a dead crab, they promise to give 3 fresh ones as a refund.
Touch screen vending machines have started surfacing only recently. And if you think they are cool, then let’s just say Tokyo already has something better. The new touch-based system called aCure, installed in the Shinagawa Station in Tokyo, is probably the inception of the next generation vending machines. Photo-realistic images of the beverage, a much improved user interface and a whole range of available beverages are just a few things included.
Ever heard or seen a moving vending machine? So what do you do when you find one of these roaming on the streets? The expressions of the children answers a lot when they first came across this robot which seems to be in a mood for vending Coca Cola. According to the photographer this red gigantic species was seen walking outside a station named Shibuya in Tokyo.
The machine you see above is actually a Pizza making machine. No, it does not provide you with a cold, frozen pizza, heated in a microwave. Instead it will actually prepare the fresh dough, shape it up like a true pizza, put sauce on it, put the required toppings on top and then cook it!! Yes, you read it right. This is the “Let’s Pizza” vending machine from inventor Claudio Torghele.
