This Cool Vending Machine Prints Free Short Stories To Read While You Wait

One company cleverly installed a vending machine filled with short stories for passengers to pass time at the airport.

Could this actually tear people away from their phones for one, three, maybe even five minutes?!

Perhaps, Short Édition, the literature-loving company behind the machine introduced their “Short Story Dispenser” to the busy  Charles de Gaulle Airport last year.

The literary dispenser allows users to choose their desired reading time and will even surprise you with random short stories.

It proved to be so popular that machines continue to pop up in random public spaces everywhere.
