Seriously. Reportedly, Dutch company A1 Concepts has created a vending machine that is able to make you a pizza -- from scratch -- in just under three minutes. It's called Let's Pizza.
From the article in the Toronto Star:
Developed by Italian entrepreneur Claudio Torghele, customers can watch dough being kneaded, shaped into a crust, where tomato sauce is added along with other toppings. Because each machine, which accepts debit and credit cards, is connected to the Internet, inventory can be monitored.
In an interview with Pizza Marketplace, an industry website, A1 Concepts' CEO Ronald Rammers said the suggested retail price for a 27-centimetre pizza will be $5.95 (U.S.), but in certain locations, machines could charge more such as a theme park.
