China Now Has Steamed Rice Vending Machines

china-rice-machine-1

No offense, but we kind of figured this thing already existed. At the South China University of Technology, they’ve just installed new vending machines specifically designed to drop mushy dollops of steamed rice directly onto students’ clanking silver trays. How’s that for technology?

Installed in what looks like a cafeteria, the two machines allow students to swipe their cards before automatically dispensing warm steamed white rice — an irrefutable (if slightly stereotypical) staple in many an Eastern Asian diet.

Other iterations of the rice vending machine have appeared on the interwebs in the past, but always in dry bag form. Which is kind of weird coming from a country that eats so much rice and already has a live crab vending machine. Uhh?

Victor Yanie: Home Cooked Meal

The man, the myth, the legend; Victor Yanie (VYaniePhoto) sent me this, this afternoon. Let’s see what he was grubbin on. Steamed rice with teriyaki shrimp on top, little middle eastern empanadas filled with ground beef and onions, and chicken on rice on the side with tabouleh sauce. Looks like a meal fit for a king, and Vic is the king.
