Pizza Vending Machines Finally Coming to America

The world of vending machines has not been exempt from the forward march of technology. Sure, you can plunk down a few coins and get yourself a bowl of fresh rice, but what about pizza? A vending machine called Let's Pizza has been pumping out fresh pies for the past two years. Unfortunately, only Europe has had access to their warm, cheesy embrace. That's all about to change, however.

A vending machine called Pizzabox is set to give America what it has always wanted, robot-made pizzas baked fresh for a measly five dollars a pop. These machines, built by the same folks who created the similarly-themed Burritobox machines, are even equipped with video conferencing capabilities so you can discuss how lonely you are with a customer service representative as your pizza cooks. Cool!

Pizzabox machines are currently in the testing phase and will begin an official rollout early next year. In the meantime, you'll have to keep ordering pizzas the old-fashioned way, by clicking on your mouse a few times.
