Are you depressed about the world’s economic woes?
Well, here’s a vending machine that puts a novel spin on bad news.
Spotted at the recently opened Open Data Institute in London UK, this vending machine has been reprogrammed to automatically dispense free snacks every time recession-related terms make the headlines on the BBC News RSS feed.
So now even bad news could be good news for you, if you happen to passing the machine at the right moment. Ingenious!
Snack fans are politely requested to form an orderly queue when the Chancellor makes his next announcement.
Thanks to Kathryn for giving me a tour, and some recession-busting crisps!
Thanks to young Mr Lee Williams for sharing this most entertaining clip from a show soon to be shown on the BBC. The furious pace of our technologically-fuelled world is brought into vivid focus by this joyful reminder to enjoy the simple pleasures in our lives. This should make you :-)
