China gets crabs in vending machines

Ever craved for seafood so much that you wished there was a vending machine stocked with crabs? Yeah, I think I’ve had that too. And apparently, one shop owner in China has come to our rescue.
On September 11 in Hangzhou, China; a vending machine stocked with live crabs started selling these crustaceans along with vinegar and two bags of ginger tea.

You can satisfy your seafood craving for just 20 yuan ($3.27). Mr Liu, owner of the crab vending machine, says that he put the machine in place so that he could capture after-hours demand for crabs.

This technology is not new, however. This type of vending machine first appeared in 2010 in a Nanjing subway station. Now if we could only have crab vending machines at every subway and bus station in the world, that would make the world a better place.
