Using the Lego Mindstorms custom software and hardware kit, Astonishing Studios managed to create a robotic McNugget dispenser that will spit out processed chicken and dipping sauce in exchange for a €2 coin. They also found a way to deal with those who try to cheat the machine, fitting it with a light sensor that detects and rejects fake or inadequate currency.
The downside is that it can only hold two boxes of McNuggets, has no internal heating system, and could probably be smashed to bricky bits if someone really wants to get some free chicken.
You have to admire the creativity though…
