If the 20-minute wait for a pizza delivery seems like an excruciatingly long time then you might want to think about installing a pizza vending machine at home instead. The ‘Wonder Pizza’ cooks and serves 9-inch whole pizzas in only 2 minutes and each machine can hold up to 3 different flavors. The pizza itself apparently comes from Chicago-based ‘Connie’s Pizza’ so there might be hope that the final product is actually edible.
The machine took 5 years and some 6 million dollars of R&D to develop and the final version can hold 102 pizzas. It has both a refrigeration unit to keep the uncooked pie fresh and an electrical oven (no microwaves) that ensures the final product has a crisp crust. The amount of crispness can even be set by the customer during the ordering process.
The ‘Wonder Pizza’ machines are already being distributed worldwide and the cost for a 9-inch pizza is about $5-6.
