10) Chef’s Farm Lettuce Vending Machine

Manufactured by the Japanese company Dentsu—need we say more?—the Chef’s Farm lettuce vending machine is apparently the next phase in locally-sourced produce, growing 20,000 heads of the vegetable annually at a rate of about 60 per day. Each machine contains five shelves of nutri-culture beds, with the seeds planted in a sponge-like material. A system of 40 watt fluorescent lights provides the lettuce with artificial sunlight, contributing to the spit take-worthy yield.
