We’ve posted an article like this before, but there seems to be few new machines popping up now so it’s only right to share an ‘update’. It’s hard to believe that such vending machines around the world exist, especially when you primarily deal in workplace refreshments like us! But without further ado, here’s some of the best vending machines from around the world…
Gold Vending Machine – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Yes, you really did read that right. Developed by German firm Ex Oriente Lux, the Gold to Go vending machine can be found at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This staggering machine dispenses genuine gold bullion in one, five and ten gram variants, so you could think of it as a glamourized ATM!
Car Vending Machine – Arizona, USA
We actually produced a blog post on this last year! Known as Carvana, this vending machine stands as tall as a typical office building and has a futuristic feel and look to its structure. The company that founded the machine are an Arizona based tech start-up who sell cars online as well as through the vending machine. It sounds crazy, but having recently expanded to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Washington DC they must be successful!
Fast Food Vending Machine – The Netherlands
With growing demand and lengthy queues, fast food isn’t quite as fast as it was originally intended to be. FEBO, a company originating from The Netherlands, have come up with an exciting solution called ‘vending machine restaurants.’ The eateries serve a wide range of food including hamburgers, croquettes and deep fried sausages, all of which are freshly made in-house.
Pizza Vending Machine – Italy
Let’s Pizzawas developed by Claudio Torghele, a former pasta company exec who was intrigued by the vending machines he saw at the US Food Courts. The machine can be customised to suit the requirements and is capable of crafting the dough in just 40 seconds. This is definitely what you’d call fast food for all the pizza lovers out there.
Cupcake Vending Machine – Beverly Hills, California, USA
Invented by a company called Sprinkles, this bakery based in California looks strangely reminiscent of an ATM machine at your local bank. It was developed in response to the company recording high demand for a cupcake only bakery, even out of hours. The rest, as they say, was history and the cupcake vending machine was developed. Whilst the original machine was developed in Beverly Hills, there have since been additional ones spotted in Chicago and Texas to name just a few cities.
No weird vending machines here, but they are wonderful!
