of vending machines – whether to grab a refreshing soda or midday snack, these pay-and-select
devices are pretty cut and dry. However, what happens when the products inside
start thinking outside the box? Today, let’s take a look at the weirdest vending
machines. Number seven – Pizza Referred to as a “Pizza ATM”, this contraption
is one of those ideas that pretty much everyone says, “WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT”. Invented by a French company – this ridiculous
but brilliant idea has actually been around France for over 14 years already. Stocked with supplies for about 70 pizzas
at a time and an internal convection oven, it serves up 12″ pies 24 hours a day – customized
to order. After the user selects the toppings they’d
like on a touchscreen and hits a button – the machine gets to work – preparing, cooking
and delivering the order (complete with a pizza box) in only three minutes. In August 2016, it officially made its US
debut at Ohio’s Xavier University. Number
six – Live Crabs Maybe you’re not in the mood for pizza (and
happen to be in China)? No problem – just walk down to the local corner
and hit up the ol’ crab machine for a delicious, live seafood treat. Stocked with live hairy crabs, customers can
select the specific one they’d like to eat from the same way you can grab a bag of chips. The machine maintains a temperature that basically
keeps the crabs in a waking coma (and trapped inside a container that shackles their movement). First appearing in Hangzhou, the capital of
Zhejiang province – it sells these hairy-tendrilled critters for around 20 RMB (or about $3 and
change), complete with some crab vinegar and two bags of ginger tea. Number five – Caviar While we’re on the subject of seafood – let’s
take a trip to the OTHER hemisphere (specifically, three different Los Angeles malls). Invented by Kelly Stern, a co-owner of Beverly
Hills Caviar (a gourmet Californian food supplier), she purchased parts from seven different countries
to manufacture the perfect device that could keep the caviar cold, be touchscreen-enabled,
be able to connect to the internet AND look inviting and attractive to passerby’s. Costing about $85,000 each, they stock fifty
grand’s worth of merchandise inside and sell items that start at $5 and top off around
$500 for an ounce of their premium caviar. See? People are insane all over the world. Number four – Bananas Yep. That’s it. One giant machine – packed to the brim with
the bright yellow fruit. You might think it’s kind of a dumb idea,
but you certainly can’t argue with the sales numbers. First introduced by Dole in 2010 – a test
machine was installed inside of a Tokyo train station and became a huge hit with morning
commuters looking to grab a bite to eat on the way to work. It’s a silly looking unit – rows and rows
of bagged bananas, just waiting to drop (and probably bruise) into the retrieval chamber
below – but people go, well, bananas over it. An Australian company recently followed suit
– installing their own versions all over Melbourne and marketed as “smart bananas”. Number three – Holy Water Don’t expect to find this one at your local
church – we’re going WAY back to the 1st Century for this one. Touted as one of the world’s oldest vending
inventions ever – the same guy who invented syringes and an archaic version of the modern
steam engine came up with a way to meter out a specific amount of blessed water into a
container after the user inserted some coins. Similar to flushing a toilet, the unit was
designed to deter people from taking more holy water than they actually paid for – an
actual problem faced by civilization back then (hey, things were a little different). Number two – Recycled Art Clark Whittington, the artist and creator
behind the “Art-O-Mat”, had a novel idea – take unused (and let’s face it, largely abandoned)
cigarette vending machines, whip up a bunch of cool paintings and sell THOSE instead. Mounted on small wood blocks, he began selling
his art for $1.00 a piece in these retro, steel containers back in 1997 for a solo art. However – when the machine ran dry of paintings
and was scheduled to be removed, the cafe owner insisted it be refilled and carried
on. Thus began a 20 year run and multiple other
Art-O-Mats that have been dispensing not food – but pretty clever creativity. Number one – Underwear Most of you probably knew this one was coming
the moment you read “weirdest vending machines”. We don’t blame you – today’s number one is
just as baffling as it is insane. Long treated as part truth / part urban legend,
vending machines that sell women’s panties DO exist in Japan (who coincidentally have
the highest ratio of vending machines to landmass). Although most of these weird devices dispense
factory-fresh underwear that’s simply artificially scented and printed to mimic a used pair,
certain seedier devices distribute legitimately soiled underoos for the price equivalent to
a combo meal. Although those remain illegal (for obvious
reasons), it doesn’t stop them from popping up JUST long enough to blast through their
inventory. Thanks for watching InterestingTop7s! Which of these was your favorite? Drop me a comment below! Also, make sure to subscribe for new videos
