In a world where food and cutlery are now printed with 3D printers, nothing fascinates anymore... Well not nothing, the United States; home to the New York cupcake ATM just acquired another food dispensing monstrosity.
Xavier University in Cincinnati is now the place to be if you’re hungry for a hot slice of pizza at any time of the day. As reported by mashable, the $55,000 ATM is located in the dorm Fenwick Hall and will be available every hour on the hour come fall 2016.
"We were looking for a way to solve this problem of having a late-night pizza option on campus," Assistant Vice President for Auxiliary Services Jude Kiah told Cincinnati.com.
Seventy pizza flavours will be prepared by the Xavier University's dining staff each day and put into the ATM for students and other hungry folk.
The mechanics behind the machine is simple. Pizzas are stored in an inbuilt refrigerator until someone inserts $9 and makes a selection. Then, the pizza is transferred into a convection oven, where it spends three minutes getting “dressed” before coming to the party.
