Steampunk Vending Machine
« on: June 22, 2021, 06:26:14 am »
I am thinking about creating and building a Steampunk-type vending machine. Any suggestions and/or ideas on what to name such a device? I mean in Steampunk style.

Here seems to be an automat example from 1888. The drawers appear spatious enough for a variety of items to be tucked within, and the front plating could be adapted to have photos if you want to have an article of clothing or something where it isn't adiquitly presented via glass window.

Just looking at the displays, there doesn't seem to be an abundance of fruit in that fruit vending machine.

Sure there is! It's just in tins, the way people in 1888 were supposed to eat fruit... With the skin off and poached in a nice 'heavy sugar syrup so it tastes nice.
