Gold vending machines to be launched across Germany, Switzerland and Austria

I always expected Dubai to be the place to come up with a unique idea like Gold vending machines. But on the contrary it is Germany who has decided to introduce these machines that would be selling gold. A German company plans to install about 500 of these gold vending machines in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. What has me confused is that you are expected to pay by cash and not card. The idea to launch these machines has stemmed from the increasing demand of German households for gold as an investment over the past few months.

Wonder if this idea will click with the people. But after the luxury vending machine in a Miami hotel that sells a Bentley convertible, the idea of a gold vending machine is definitely not surprising.
