A vending machine in Hiroshima, Japan serves up fresh pizza pies.
Money goes in. Pizza comes out. It’s that simple. The vending machine, named Pizza Self 24, first became a tourist attraction in 2018. Long lines reportedly flooded the technological novelty.
Truck driver Yoshiharu Taniguchi came up with the idea because he wanted pizza even when he worked long nights. A 24-hour pizza ATM seemed like the perfect solution.
“Japan still has many opportunities,” Taniguchi told Japan Times. “My goal is to spread pizza vending machines throughout Japan from Hiroshima.”
All a customer has to do is insert money and in less than five minutes a pizza pie is ejected from the machine — complete with a disposable pizza cutter.
So the next time you’re in a pinch, maybe an ATM pizza will do.
