Self-Driving Vending Machines

Think ice cream truck, except without a driver, and with an automated payment and delivery system (i.e. put in your dollar, push a button, out drops a bag of chips).

Use a different sound for each type of vending machine, so you know what's driving by. Pulls over and stops when it sees someone waving their arms or hears them yelling something like "mom I want an ice cream".

       Mariachi music for tacos and doritos and such.

       [2fry] For the first 5 years of my first son's life I had him convinced that was a "music truck".   

       [Ray] Yes! The different sounds comes from a small town in Java I stayed in once. Mobile vendors there each tap out a different pattern on a bell or dish as they walk, so you know when the fried rice cart comes by vs. the noodle cart vs. the ice cream cart.
