23 Weird Vending Machines

More and more vending machines are making their ways into our cities, airports and even neighborhoods, and they are not just for mere snacks or drinks anymore. To show the variety of bizarre things that these machines offer, we gathered here 23 Weird Vending Machines that provide various products, food and even Gold. Some are actually pretty cool while others really weird, but in the end, I don’t see these machines going anywhere anytime soon.

Marijuana ATM

The Marijuana Vending Machine makes it a lot easier to get Medicinal Marijuana when the Doctor is not in. Two guards are always beside it, but in the end, it gives vacuum sealed Marijuana for those with proof to purchase.

Anger Release Machine

Sometimes we are just looking for some kind of release, and the Anger Release Vending Machine aims to provide it. This machine sells little pieces of China just for the means of breaking them towards the release of stress, anger and other baggage. It seems like a Winning idea to me…unless someone just tips over the machine and breaks everything inside.

Car Sales

Here are two Vending Machines that sell Cars (or market so). The Smart Car one is a cool display in Tokyo that gives Pamphlets within a tube to those looking at one of the two offered models. The second is an actual Superstore Vending Machine that offers many different products that could be as small as a pen or as large as brand new Bentley. Of course, since the Bentley wouldn’t fit in the nifty bags you get when you make a purchase, a voucher for one will be given to give to the respective personnel.

Gold Vending Machine

For those interested in a Golden prize, this vending machine allows you to buy it by piece. The Gold Vending machine provides authenticated Gold pieces for different purchase amounts. In order to avoid Money Laundering, it also has a limit of 3 purchases a day. And for purchase over €1000, it would need to scan a User’s ID.

Live Insects

This vending machine provides Live Insects at a push of a button. I guess if you are in a real fix, this machine really grants a quick remedy.

Live Bait

This vending machine doesn’t really seem so weird when you think of the popularity of Fishing. It just makes it easier for Fishermen to get the needed bait at ALL times.

Shoe Concept Machine

Although just a concept, I guess many were always looking for easier ways to buy shoes. Lo and Behold, perhaps a new vending machine will make it to your city and make it easier to get yourself a new pair.

It may not be as weird as Live Insects, but it is still pretty weird that you can buy fresh strawberries from an actual Vending Machine.
