We all know Japan is known to have the wackiest gadgets in the world. This time, they came up with something quite useful. Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to their banana vending machines! Strangely enough, an American-based food company Dole Food Company planned this.
Japan currently has around one vending machine per every twenty-three people. They have typical things, such as drinks and snacks. They also have some wacky ones, like canned bread, eggs, fresh meat, live lobsters, porn, umbrellas, vegetables, and the queerest one… used schoolgirl panties.
So it’s no surprise that banana vending machines are going to be added to their collection of odd vending machines. They are planning to offer a single banana for ¥130 ($1.50) and six bananas for ¥390 ($4.50).
How are they going to store bananas? Good question. According to Technabob, the ideal temperature bananas is 55.4 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius). Using this information, they will store bananas at corresponding temperature. Sounds cool, right?
These will be great for students and office workers for breakfast or snacks! It’s already a hit because a prototype was set up at the Shibuya station in Tokyo where there are 2.4 million commuters everyday, and people seemed to love the idea of having banana vending machines.
What do you think is their next target? Apples? Strawberries?
