Old vending machines are so freaking cool. Ice-T loves them when his friends come over to hang out – he got fed up paying for their grub. We love them because we like to see precocious kids get their arms stuck inside them. But unfortunately neither are possible with this ultra retro vending machine. It’s been outfitted with two capacitive touch sensors that when simultaneously touched count in lieu of payment. But the fun doesn’t stop there. If you’re the proud owner of this machine, you just fire up the custom iPhone app and remotely eject a beverage, although it looks like you can’t choose your fave flavor.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
