French bread vending machine tries to make bakers obsolete

Want some fresh-baked bread but are nowhere near a bakery? Well, this French vending machine aims to help you out by offering fresh bread at the push of a button.

This machine takes coins and then bakes you some bread while you wait. Sure, it's not kneading any dough in there, just heating up frozen baguettes, but it's still pretty neat. It takes a minute for the bread to bake and 30 seconds for it to cool down before you get it. Not too shabby.
