Okay, so these aren’t exactly inventions (more like art projects) but both so cool I couldn’t resist posting them. The first is the Graffomat, a graffiti art supplies vending machine designed to “supply you with all of your favorite state of the art graffiti supplies.” You can even buy gloves and a ski mask. Do I see a design patent in their future (or maybe a trip downtown…)?
Anyway, next up is the Art-O-Mat, retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to dispense art. There are almost a hundred of these machines around the country, including Omaha come summer 2010.
Maybe someone will put the two side-by-side and we’ll get an Art-O-Mat filled with graffiti. Or covered in it.
Ever wonder who invented the first vending machine?
