New Business Products: Pizza Vending Machine, Mexican Kosher Tequila, and Stink-free Underwear


Last6 week must have been the top week for new business products. Talk about innovative and different, one is a pizza making vending machine in Rome which makes a fresh pizza in just a few minutes, another is a Mexican made kosher tequila called Agave 99 created by a New York businessman, and the third is stink-free underwear, which is being tested by Koichi Wakata, the first Japanese astronaut to live on the International Space Station.

this really isn't that surprising; If you look at China you can get almost anything out of a vending machine including alcohol. While this does seem to be a little to in your face for me, there are some major advantages such as not having to wait in line with only one cashier working standing behind the idiot who has to do the price check....uuugghh
It seems like only a matter of time before luxury item vending machines or "robotic stores" become mainstream over here. Apple (aapl) and Sony (SNE) have already invested in vending machines with a company called Zoom (who is unfortunately not public but has been financially backed by Goldman Sachs. But AVT Inc (avtc) who is public and profitable just signed a multi million dollar contract with Igo (igoi). There are sure to be many more companies moving in this direction in the near future. While AVT in my opinion has been a sleeper stock, with news of the major players coming in, I doubt if it will continue that way for long
