I wonder how they coined it 'Incassomat' - thinking now...

That's a pearler of a find there...Cheers!

Wow, that's really cool!

Note that nowhere in the description does it say the following:

"If using a robot cashier outside your network, you may be subject to additional fees and/or robot violence."

Look at that fur coat! I wonder if that lady is a famous pro sports star of the time?

Dino aka Katy said...

thats really neat

Bubs said...

Katy, I thought so too.

Coolcat, I'm not sure. We'd have to know if she's stopping for cash on her way to a dog fight.

Dr. MVM, me too. We need more conveyor belts and rocket jet packs.

Splotchy, I think it says that on the label just to the left of where he's putting the money. Look close.

Danny, good question. It's Incassomatic.

I love that there is an analog clock on the machine!

Wow-- what an idea. Hey, I'll bet if you could come up with a machine like that that dispenses cash, you'd make a million bucks...
