Hand-cranked Vending Machine: Yes, You Still Have to Pay

by Lambert Varias

The Japanese love using vending machines so much that they have even come up with one that can be used in case of emergencies, particularly when there’s no electricity. But you’ll have to do more than break glass with this vending machine, because it requires 70 turns of its hand crank – and payment – before it coughs up its goodies.

Made by Sanden, the machine is thoughtful enough to dispense 6 to 7 items per 70 cranks, so it’s better if you team up with other customers and take turns at the hand-crank. Or give up and look for a human vendor.

If he wasn’t thirsty before he started the demo, I bet he actually needed the drink afterwards. I know that the machine was made for a specific situation, but it would be hilarious if a vending machine that sold junk food also had a hand-crank.
