I recently saw the live lobster vending machine, and I love it.
But here’s a problem closer to my heart: I rarely carry cash anymore, and only obtain it in quantity before going to the Farmer’s Market on Sundays. This causes problems at work, when I want a quick snack from the vending machine.
We should be able to use our RFID badges, which we can use in the cafeteria with money values kept on the network, in vending machines on campus. But we can’t.
Guess I’ll keep waiting.
