Gold Bars from a Vending Machin

Another cool article from the Awake! magazine that's worth sharing. Cause you know, it's good to be updated with the latest happenings from the other side of the planet. :)

In several places around the world, gold bars can now be added to the long list of products available from vending machines. For example, a hotel from Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, has installed a machine that dispenses 320 items, including gold bars with weight of up to 10 g and customized gold coins. Gold prices are updated every ten minutes, using a computerized link to international markets. At first, the machine accepted only local currency, but a credit card option was planned. The location for this initiative was chosen because of the region's high demand for gold according to the report.
