    While in Japan I noticed vending machines everywhere. Looking into it a little deeper a discovered that there's a very interesting answer to why Japan has so many vending machines. It's an economic story but it's also a story about how Japanese society values robotics and automation.

    I even found a business card vending machine: https://www.102tube.com/video/Ogb7FyzQhbk/video.html
