Most of us have bought simple items like cans of drink or snacks in a vending machine before, but there is a whole world of new vending machines popping up all over the world. As you’ll see from the list below you can pretty much buy anything from a machine these days making it even easier to get rid of our hard earned cash…
1. The gold vending machine that first popped up in Dubai and has spread all over the world. Because you never know when you would be down the shops and want a bit of gold.
2. Travellers to the USA will have seen these Best Buy vending machines in most airports. You can buy everything from an iPad to Beats headphones.

5. We love burritos and much as we’d prefer to see somebody making them for us you do have to admit that you’d like to try this machine at least once!
6. You normally think of vending machines as having unhealthy food but these salads sold in the USA in a jar are chilled and with loads of fresh ingredients. Perfect for busy office areas.

14. Targeted at both kids and their parents and placed in busy transit areas who wouldn’t want to grab some LEGO to keep them entertained?
