Pizza Vending Machine

Researchers at the University of Bologna in Italy, in conjunction with Unilever, have developed a pizza vending machine that, for a 5 Euros (about $6), will bake a fresh pizza in under three minutes.

The machine includes technology to mix ingredients and roll out the dough, spread sauce and toppings, and cook the pizza itself; each one is essentially made to order.

The pizza is baked using “infra-red rays” as opposed to a traditional oven and there are windows on the machine so you can watch the process from start to finish, much as you would in a “real” pizzeria.

Here's the video:
