This is for anyone who owns or has at one point owned any of the following: a personal gumball machine, a mini desktop fridge, a mini "olde-time" popcorn popper. It's a personal ramen noodle cup vending machine. In the video, which appears after the jump, the thing looks like more bother than it's worth.
A vending machine—especially a Japanese one—is supposed to be all automated and whizz-bangy, but this one is little more than a hot-water kettle with a timer attached—mashed up with a novelty piggy bank. Still, the video is fun in that wacky-Japanese -appliance kind of way.
