I saw the coolest thing in the paper the other day. The Chicago Public Library is researching the viability of putting book vending machines into el stations. I think this is a friggin awesome idea. Just swipe your card, pick a new release and viola you have entertainment when your mp3 player is dead. I really hope this works out.
To anyone feeling especially Japanese today do you have any ideas for what else would be cool to see in a vending machine?
