I took this straight off of Urban Prankster because well I didn’t come by any of this information on my own and I’d have nothing new to add. I think this is just too cool to pass up though as this would have to be the most fun business to run/the most interactive art I could think of. This is the good type of interaction, not like that other thing I wrote about earlier.
anywho, words by Charlie Todd.
“Jake Bronstein recently bought a toy vending machine off the Internet. He filled the toy capsules with ideas of fun things to do and started placing the machine in various spots around New York. For 50 cents you get the original toy, an idea, and a map to guide you to the location for your idea. Each capsule also contains a quarter, refunding half of your purchase price (the machine wouldn’t let him charge less than 50 cents.)”
