A LEGO Machine That Dispenses Personal Pan Pizzas and Change After Users Insert Five Dollars

Astonishing Studios has created a LEGO machine that dispenses Pizza Hut personal pan pizzas and correct change after users insert five dollar bills. A light sensor detects and counts the bills, and after the fifth bill is inserted it triggers the release of the pizza and 71¢. The machine holds two pizzas and $1.42 in change.

After receiving dozens of comments requesting a Pizza machine, I decided to unite “The Flavor of Now” with LEGO. Seeing that personal pan pizzas were the perfect size for a machine, I began designing and building a machine that accepted five dollars (with 71¢ change to match the real price) in exchange for a cheese pizza.
