May 19 2006Nike Machine Dispenses Soccer Ball

nike-joga3-vending.jpgNike has installed a soccer ball vending machine in New York City as part of its Joga3 campaign. The vending machine is located at Chelsea Piers in the city, and the soccer balls are sold for $20 each. Hopefully other corporations will follow Nike's lead, creating a new age of vending machines that will rival Japan's prosperous industry. If I wake up in the middle of the night and I want to buy myself some cigarettes or a few soccer balls or maybe a new baby, I shouldn't be subjected to the fickle whim of a retailer's "business hours." I should be able to walk to some shady district and purchase those things from a nonjudgmental robot box. That's my God-given right.
