The 15 Most Bizarre Vending Machines


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.
