In Italy, a Vending Machine Even Makes the Pizza

The New York Times has the story of Italian Claudio Torghele, a man who developed a vending machine that cooks pizza. And it’s not just some frozen food that’s nuked for a quick snack. The machine actually whips up flour, water, tomato sauce, and fresh ingredients to produce a pizza in about three minutes. Read more about the man and the machine over at the New York Times website. Although the Italian design isn’t the first pizza vending machine, the result is nonetheless pretty cool. The video below isn’t of Torghele’s machine, but demonstrates how a different pizza vending machine works:
