I grew up watching The Jetsons. I loved the way they zipped from one place to another in their sky-cars. For me, growing up I always pictured that we would have flying cars in the year 2000. We all know that didn’t happen.
The other thing that impressed me was their food dispenser. Yeah, my priorities are right. Flee and eat! Anyway, they would just walk up to the machine and tell it what they wanted and Zippo! Food served, hot and fresh with no mess. “Look, Ma! No dishes!”
We had vending machines in those days for candy, snacks, drinks (mostly soda), and coffee. The coffee machine always impressed me the most because it MADE you the mixture you wanted: Black, cream, sugar, etc.
A month or two ago they announce a beer vending machine, my first thought was: “what about a Vodka and cranberry!”
Seriously, the next wave of future gadgets and gizmos will probably be more advanced vending machines. We already rent our movies this way and buy other merchandise this way, so why not fresh cooked food?
Man, why did it have to be my favorite food? I love pizza! I can eat it every day and not get tired of it. What is fascinating is this machine actually mixes the flour and water, kneads the dough, adds the sauce and topping. It then cooks the pizza for about three minutes, drops it into a 10.5” box and spits it out to the awaiting hungry person (that would be me).
I sincerely hope it tastes good. The problem. . .I love pizza so much I’d find myself passing a machine and ordering a ‘pie and sooner or later my middle will start looking like a pie!
