If the stamp vending machine is one of New Zealand's oldest and most successful inventions, the flower vending machine is one of our newest. Whether it is successful, only time will tell. Famous Kiwi film production designer Andrew McAlpine (The Piano, Sid and Nancy, The Beach and more) has designed and built an unmanned kiosk that automatically vends specially crafted bouquets of flowers 24/7. Using the kiosk's screen you choose a bunch, pay by card then the door opens and you take your flowers. The first kiosk opened in Blackfriars metro station in London in 2013 and immediately all along the train route marriages improved.
