Pizza Kiosk

Pizza on-demand
  [vote for,

A fully-automated Pizza Kiosk. FROZEN slices of pizza are rotated through an oven and are delivered piping hot, one slice at a time. Depending on traffic patterns, pizza slices could be in varying stages of completion. A timer could present the number of minutes until served.

The machines could be franchised and placed nearly anywhere.

A beverage machine could be combined providing for additional sponsorship. Perhaps a Dominos & Pepsi experiment.

       Ever toasted a frozen pizza dinner? Ugh. [You might call for an automated pizza oven, but you know what will happen in practice.]

       You could top your own pizza using a robot arm controlled by a little joystick. Special prize if you can pick up the anchovy (and drop it down the rubbish chute).

       Ok, not such a great idea. But rotating ovens in convenience stores are simply cookers. I was thinking of a self-maintaining vending machine with frozen pizzas that are cooked on demand. No waste. I suppose the freezer section could pump out smoothies ;)

       Baked, sorry.   

       This concept has even gone so far that in New York there's a vending machine DELI.   

       Damn YUPPIES.

       There was (famously) a vending machine deli in NYC forty years ago. But we've talked about that over and over. And it didn't do pizza.

       Vending Machine Deli? Now that would be cool. Robotic arms that slap together a great sandwich. Grab a knife and slop on Mayonaise. Ok, to go where no other vendo has gone, the Pizza Kiosk's robotics can toss a crust, pour sauce, place toppings,etc. while whistling a classic Italian song.
