Sprinkles Cupcake Vending Machine

Sprinkles of Beverly Hills has introduced a 24 hour cupcake vending machine so that cake nuts can get a $5 cupcake in a neat little box any time they fancy. The machine holds 600 cakes and only accepts credit cards. You can see a video of the machine in action below, featuring Drew Barrymore’s sister -

I guess if you’re really into Sprinkles cupcakes and no other brand will do then this is a great idea. To me through, a vending machine with only one type of product is a little boring and if I’m going to head outside I’ll probably need more than a cupcake so I’ll visit the nearest 24 hour store instead. Still, if I was walking past I’d have to give it a go and if I became addicted to their cakes then I would much rather be served by a machine any-time!

I wonder how long until Greggs start stuffing one of these machines with sausage rolls?

Swimsuit Vending Machine

A blogs just not a blog unless there’s an article about bikinis in there somewhere. Well, luckily for all of us the Standard Hotel in South Beach has installed swimwear vending machine next to it’s outdoor pool.

They’ve teamed up with Quicksilver so the stuff aint cheap – $75 for mens board shorts and $85 for a reversible bandeau-top bikini but if you’ve ever found yourself without swimmers on a beautiful day with a pool on offer I think you might just make the purchase. Fortunately you don’t need to have any money on you to buy from this machine and you simply pop in your room key and they’ll add your purchases to your bill. I’d personally head over to a cheap shop and buy a $10 pair from Walmart but that’s just me.

Pizza Vending Machine Announced – Febo Quake in their Boots

Ok I’m joking. The Pizza vending machine is real Febo aren’t worried. People will still buy their greasy delicious snack hastily crammed into sweaty plastic pigeon holes by hairy hands.

Let's Pizza: A new stand-alone pizza making machine is on its way to the U.S. creating custom 10.5-inch pizzas in under three minutes' time

‘Let’s Pizza’ is the worlds first (or second – I can’t remember which one I saw first) pizza vending machine that is truly amazing. You might be thinking that after you drop your coins in a frozen pizza will fall into a microwave for a few minutes before being ejected, face first, onto the floor.

Well, if you were thinking that you’d be wrong. Very wrong. The entire Pizza is made from scratch with even the dough being made just for you. Check out the promo video below…

A true fact about this video is that a top Hong Kong studio was paid a million dollars to ensure that the dubbing was undetectable.

I love this machine. I’m a little concerned by the amount of times they say hygeine and ‘human free’ in  just 3 minutes but if I win the lottery I’m not going to put in a McDonlads like Ri¢hie Ri¢h but one of these. Once the pizza is ready you even get a cutter and some oregano! Magnifico!

Have you ever tried a pizza from one of these machines? Do the pizzas actually look anything like the one in the video? I’m desperate to know what they taste like so please drop me a line and let me know what you thought if you’ve tried one. Thanks

Gold Bar Vending Machine

You know how it is. It’s 4 in the morning and you’ve just used up your last gold bar. So what you gonna do? The shops don’t open until 9am and you really need another gold bar NOW. Well rest easy – because vending machines that dispense gold bars have arrived in the UK.

der-automat-aktuelle-modelle

Originally these started out in Germany with 500 machines offering 1g, 5g, and 10g bars of gold as well as gold coins. They prices are updated every 10 minutes so you always pay the right price and there’s a camera on the front to prevent money laundering (lol!)

Well, the machines have arrived in Britain now and you can give it a try for yourself by popping down to the Westbury Shopping Centre in west London. Interestingly each machine hold 200kg of gold.

The video with owner saying it’s great for when you can buy flowers was too ridiculous to watch so here’s a clip from the BBC when the machines first hit Germany.

Vending Machine Grows 20,000 Heads of Lettuce a Year Without Sunlight

Photos: Dentu

We may need to peddle a bicycle 24 hours a day if we’re going to grow lettuce in a Soylent Green future but that has to be better than actually eating people!!

This ‘Chef’s Farm’ machine from Dentsu provides its own sunlight with 12 x 40 Watt bulbs per shelf but once loaded up and running, turns out an incredible 60 heads of lettuce a day totalling 20,000 per year!

The machine retails for $90,000 and isn’t restricted just growing lettuce (although illegal activities could land you in jail!)

There’s not much information around on this and I don’t see a coin slot which makes me wonder if this is real or some sort of art installation or practical joke. I’m a bit sceptical at the moment but if you have more evidence on this or a video of it vending I’ll be the first one to admit I’m wrong. It is undeniably cool though and I love the look and concenpt of this so it can stay….for now.
