Leave it to the Chinese to make this a reality. The vending machine offers Shanghai Hairy Crabs.... and did I mention they are packed in there ALIVE!
The inside of the machine is kept at 5 degrees celsius, a temperature cold enough to make the crabs go into a state of hibernation. A sign states that all the crabs in the machine are fresh: if the crab is dead-on-arrival, they promise to give you three free crabs.
...not sure how I feel about this. I'm sure PETA will have a few words to say.
