The Biblio-Mat






A book store, The Monkey's Paw, created a random book dispenser and now it's a Toronto tourist attraction.
The Biblio-Mat combines the charm of a gumball machine with the surprise element of a raffle. The machine jumps to life once money’s inserted. With a bit of overt drama--cranking and whirring and ringing that invoke old machinery--the dispenser then releases a used title from its stock, dropping it into a slot for a happy reader to walk away with. (Co.Exist)
 ...an artful alternative to the ubiquitous and often ignored discount sidewalk bin. (Craig Small)
See it in action and read more about it's success.
