This Vending Machine Serves Up Fried Chicken

Food dispensed from a machine is usually not the freshest, but what if we’re talking about a vending machine that serves up fresh fried chicken? That’s what the Lawson Karaage-kun robot does. Naturally, the machine looks like a chicken too, because Japan. A chicken serving chicken? That just seems wrong.

Japanese convenience chain Lawson Inc. is testing out the machine right now at an outlet in Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo. The machine has “state-of-the-art” technology that allows it to fry chicken in a little over a minute. Basically, fried chicken is prepared and kept warm until someone orders it. That’s not my definition of “fresh,” but to each their own.

If the machine proves successful, the company may adapt it to dish out other types of fried foods. Hell, maybe we will see this chicken-faced machine at KFC soon. I hope not because it looks a bit terrifying if you ask me. The trial will only operate during the daytime from now until December 28, 2018, so if you happen to be in Tokyo, you might want to go check it out.
