Man Builds Robot To Steal Soda From Vending Machines

soda-stealing-robot.jpg

This is a video of French Youtuber ioduremetallique demonstrating the remote controlled robot he built to steal soda cans out of vending machines. The design is pretty impressive and all, but I question dude's morals. Also, the cost vs. benefit analysis of building a robot to steal soda from a vending machine. Cost to build robot: $1,200, value of soda stolen to date: $4.50. Jesus, just rock the machine back and forth till it crushes you like a normal person.

Hit the jump for a video demo of the robot, but skip to 1:20 for the action to begin.

Thanks to Richie L, who doesn't need to steal sodas because he's richie.

    I'll whip the skin off your back, little n1gger boy. Know your place in our world.

  • FUall

    hahahah fuuuuuuuuuk u..

  • This guy is a genius for creating that very interesting robot. At a young age, this guy has what it takes to be the next Tony Stark, the Iron Man. LOL. - http://www.selectivend.com/

  • Adonos

    All my cyberpunk dreams are coming true.....

  • For what it cost him to build that gadget, he could have bought a LOT of soda.

  • What a dick. This will cost the next person double the price to get a can.

  • Seriously

    Of course its a black guy.

  • Justin_Igger

    Leave it to a n1gger to develop something, and that something is to steal more stuff. Typical n1gger sh!t right here.

  • Dani

    This robot is Bender's ancestor.
    Won't work in USA though.

  • Proctor

    I bet it's not even fluent in over 6 millions forms of communication. Epic fail.

  • disqus_cneYA1Cydq

    I seem to remember a Geekologie article about gold vending, vending machines in the UAE...

  • I just use a sledgehammer.

  • JJtoob

    OK, I'll give him kudos for his technological skills, however:
    I hope that doesn't mean that a real buyer hitting the row with an empty space does not get a can of air, otherwise, you not only killed it for the guy who wanted a Coke Zero, you also screwed up business by discouraging people from buying from that row, unless someone is either dumb or feels generous enough to pay twice.
    Not to mention this means you can only grab one, maybe two cans from each row, at a veeery slow pace.
    Also, when is the kinect version coming out?

  • le.freak

    talks like a retard, and is he French? being born in an eagle's nest doesn't make a rat an eagle.

  • Matthew Little

    Fuck off asshole.

  • Ganonmaster

    Great proof of concept. What it needs is reliable grippers and some automation. This guy should get on Kickstarter so we can all get our hands on this novelty product that will get you arrested for sure.
