Remember the days when vending machines featured items such as lightly salted pretzel sticks? If not, don't worry about it. We're pretty sure Hudson Hotel doesn't remember either.
The Hudson Hotel in NYC has launched Semi-Automatic, which is an oversized vending machine that includes some traditional hotel vending machine items, such as a toothbrush, but also many fancy and unorthodox vending machine items, including the following:
-Copies of Catcher in the Rye
-A Ouija Board
-A Dagger Rosary by jewelery designer Pamela Love
-A Black Sequin Mini Skirt by Haute Hippie
-24k Gold Handcuffs by Kiki De Montparnasse
-A way to rent a Red Ferrari 599 GTB from Gotham Dream Cars
-An Original Hudson T-Shirt, designed by artist Chrissie Miller of SOPHOMORE
The machine is available 24/7, and prices range from $4 for basic items to $10,000 for a one-week rental on a Ferrari.
Sounds like a kick-ass vending machine, although as a throwback, it might be nice if it had a couple of classic vending machine items. We'd be much more likely to decide to rent the $10,000 car if we could chew it over with a Twix first.
What items would U like to see in the Semi-Automatic?
