You can find jelly beans at almost any shop, but that involves actually getting up and going somewhere to satisfy your sweet tooth. Why go through all that hassle when for just over $10,300/£7,783 you can buy your own personal jelly bean vending machine and set it up right next to your desk at work, or sofa at home?
Before you balk at the price tag, it’s important to remember that this doesn’t cost money, it makes money—if you’re willing to let friends, family, or co-workers have access to your sugar stash. The machine doesn’t just dispense jelly beans, mixed from five different flavour cylinders into paper cups, it also includes all of the necessary mechanisms and coin slots necessary in the event you want to charge people to use it.
The machine even comes with 45 kilos of jelly beans to get you started, 350 paper cups, and presumably the ability to charge whatever you want. The choice is yours: Free for yourself, or ridiculously over-priced for your starving co-workers. [Frontgate]
