Live Crab Vending Machine: Only in Japan. Oh Wait, This Thing is in China.

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 3, 2010


I guess that China was feeling a little behind the curve from Japan and their wacky inventions, so they decided to come up with their own. What you’re looking at here is a vending machine that dispenses not candy bars or cans of soda, but live crabs.

Yup. This machine holds an army of living crustaceans, all put on ice enough to keep them alive. Sleepy, but alive. The machine was designed to provide quick and easy access to these critters, without a long trip to go buy them outside of the city.

The machine, located in a Nanjing, China subway station sells about 200 crabs a day at a cost ranging from about $2 to $7, depending on the size of the crabs. They already have a second machine in operation, and plan to expand to other cities in the near future.
