This Robot Dispenses Raw Juice at the Touch of a Button

The Kickstarter for the Raw Juice Bot promises a future where we can get raw, fresh juice from a vending machine

It would be pretty cool to have a raw juice vending machine inside schools instead of junk food dispensers.

Don’t you just hate it when you’re on a raw juice cleanse and you forget your carrot/ginger/kale concoction at home? It may sound like a first-world problem, but raw juicing is here to stay, and has taken its place in the organic food movement. And soon you may be able to get your juicing fix on the go. Meet the makers of the Raw Juice Bot, who just started a movement on Kickstarter to make the first commercially-viable, automated raw juice dispenser.

Say goodbye to vending machines full of Tropicana and Gatorade, because this juice bot guarantees that you will be able to get freshly-pressed, 100-percent organic juice with a shelf life of less than 48 hours, all at the touch of a button. Inside the vending machine will be four containers full of greens, roots, citrus fruit, and seasonal fruit/vegetable offerings. Then when a customer enters their selection and payment, the robot will get to work creating a custom juice drink.

If the team at Juice Bot meets their $10,000 goal, you can expect the juices to show up in California markets by the end of the year, and to spread to the East Coast by 2015.
