It’s genius basically, and I’m glad to hear that he took a cool $5 in just an hour! You’re getting a lot for your 24c although if I was him I’d find a mew mechanism that took quarters so he doesn’t need to put money in the capsules as the machine will probably disappear one day!

I’ve got a few similar machines here so if you have a great idea and want to see it come to life, or just have a great suggestion let me know and we can have some fun!
Whilst most advertisers these days are either too unimaginative to create interesting ads (see any ad by Brandpower) or too skint (see any recycled ‘retro’ 70’s ads that are being re-shown), Australian company ‘Fantastic Delites’ has used a fantastic idea and understood what Viral means with this fantastic prank vending machine.
It doesn’t take money but instead commands you to perform a variety of tasks from pressing a button a hundred times to making you kneel and worship the machine.
It just goes to show that a bit of creativity and a small budget can go a long way. Watch the video below – you’ll love it!
So this dude on Vimeo has come up with the Wedding Vending Machine. It doesn’t dispense wedding dresses or cake and looks like it’s straight out of an episode of Futurama. Watch the video below and enjoy –
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’ 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
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.
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.
The very first vending machine that we know about was deigned and built by the Ancient Greeks and was described by Hero of Alexandria. It was said to be a coin operated Holy Water dispenser. The coin would tilt a mechanism inside allowing the water to flow until the coin slid from the mechanism and the water would stop.
I’m a little sceptical about whether or not this actually existed or if it was just a theroy like so many of Leonardo Da Vinici’s scetches. Given the way coins were produced back in the day (the inconsistencies of pressing), and the non existent anti-tamper mechanisms I think you could have poured sand into this device and it would have worked.
Still..it’s nice to see some early vending ideas.
I got the image from this site – Under The Pier Show – which is one mans labour of love that actually visit so please check out the link. More on the Under the Pier Show soon.
