What is it about the vending machine? We see one, and are immediately drawn to it. Maybe it's the fact that the food and drink safely secured within it is off-limits, making it even more desirable. Maybe the food is so nicely displayed and easily accessible that we impulsively want to sample what's inside. Either way, vending machines are here to stay, and they've been luring us towards them for decades and decades.
