Sometimes you have to wonder about the reason for new inventions, and if they are really necessary.  Take for example the pizza vending machine.  That's right, I said pizza vending machines.

A European company called A1 Concepts has announced plans to start setting up the machines in the U.S.  They've been a huge hit in Europe, and will be here before the end of the year.

They're called "Let's Pizza" machines, and they cook you a fresh pizza in just two-and-a-half minutes.  The average price will be a reasonable $6 for a 10-and-a-half-inch pizza.  I don't know about you, but I absolutely HATE the line at the Redbox.  Could you imagine the line at the pizza vending machine.

Then again, you COULD get your movie and a pizza all in one shop... from a machine? Pretty soon we're not going to have any sales clerks left at all.
