*withdraws 10 pizzas, tbh*

What’s the one thing you wish existed but could never quite wrap your brain around? No, personal robots aren’t widely available (yet) but grabbing your favourite dinner item is about to become as easy as withdrawing money from your atm. 

Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio are the proud recipients of the first “pizza atm” to land in America. The machine was developed by a French firm and can hold 70 pizzas at a time. 

Yes, one machine. 70 pizzas. Will that be enough to last you during your regularly scheduled Netflix binge session? Challenge accepted. 

The owners of Pizza ATM claim that the machine is able to pop out a freshly baked pie in 3 minutes flat and I, for one, believe that is 3 minutes too long.

The pizzas are $9-10 and can be paid for with the students' university card or a credit card.

This might be America's intro into the pizza atm world, but European and Asian countries have been toying with pizza vending concepts for a while. This is, however, the height of human innovation and we have truly reached our peak. Da Vinci would have been proud.  

Either way, we're taking the rest of day off to, um...test the pizza ATM. In a professional capacity. To make sure it's fully operational, of course.
