You can get almost anything from a vending machine: beer in Bulgaria; used undies in Japan; sex toys in Spain; and healthy snacks instead of Cheetos anytime you actually want Cheetos. Now in Hangzhou, China, you can treat yourself to a ride -- for a few hours, at least.
As part of a car-sharing initiative, the electric car manufacturer Kandi Technologies has set up 2 mammoth vending machines in the last year. They look like giant Pez dispensers, except they're upside-down and not shaped like a cartoon character. And there's no candy. Why's this interesting, again? Oh yeah: cars!
