Vending machines are always great when you're in a pinch. With some spare change chips, nuts, fruit and sandwiches are all available at your fingertips. But champagne? Certainly that's too luxurious to be sold through a vending machine, right? Well, say hello to the world's first champagne vending machine.
Located at Selfridges, an upscale department store in London, the vending machine dispenses mini bottles of Moet & Chandon for £17.99 (an estimated $30). The machine is stocked with 350 bottles of bubbly and makes buy champagne a breeze.
To use this champagne vending machine you would just slide your debit card and make your selection. Seconds later a mechanical arm will deliver your bottle safely. Voilà! That's all it takes to buy champagne.
