“In a stunning twist of fate, the oft-belittled vending machine emerges as a beacon of hope in an age of disarray,” writes Luke Fater for Atlas Obscura in an article introducing “10 Vending Machines Offering Contact-Less Culinary Oddities.”

The selections include Seattle’s mystery soda machine, a crepe machine in Japan and the Jones Bar-B-Q vending machine in Kansas City. We reported on the Jones Bar-B-Q machine here.
