BBC news did a piece on the gold bar machine last week...
The Pizza one looks cracking... fancy having that in the corner of the kitchen lol
Not sure about the live lobster one though
The bike one isn't really a vending machine though, as you have to return the bike.
I have heard though, that there are inner tube vending machines in Holland.
My local pool used to have a chip vending machine, and I had a look inside it while it was being serviced once.
I know how to live!!!
It contained a freezer, with pre-cooked chips, and a teeny-weeny deep fat fryer. Insert your money, and 45 seconds later you get a portion of fried carby goodness.
It smelled...a bit like a miniature chip-shop, I suppose.
It's not there any more
It's great, isn't it, how swimming pools always have machines dispensing bad-for-you food - it's like "Ok, you exercised, now your reward....!"
Do gyms have the same? (having never been in one, I dunno.)
What's the one in your first pic vending Smiffy? I can't make it out
Nor can I. Looks like "strawberry-and-potato" something-or-other, but my German's not up to it. I hope I've got that wrong...
Lol! "Nie mehr ohne Continental Fahrradschlaeuche" = "Never more without Continental bicycle inner-tubes"
5kg bags of tatties - i am not that sure what the right hand one was - Weerts (I thought it was some sort of beet but!
could only be in Germany
I'm sure I read somewhere that in Japan they have machines that vend used knickers!
Odd bunch, them Japanese.
So let's get this straight. There's a vending machine in Germany which dispenses strawberry-potato-and-beetroot burgers?!
Schoolgirl ones at that, I have read.
Always miss the passing of cigarette vending machines. They might as well have had a sign saying "Hey kids, get your fags here!"
Also loved an Indian airports take on vending machines. They had a coffee vending machine but you had to give your money to a young lady who would put the money in the machine for you and then give you your coffee.
Who said vending machines take away people's jobs?
