Now, as much as many of us may deride the French, this is brilliant.

French baker, Jean-Louis Hecht came up with the idea of a vending machine after customers would repeatedly stop by his apartment above his bakery and ring his bell after the store was closed to request fresh bread.

After much trial and error, he wound up with a machine that turns pre-cooked bread into steaming baguettes. Available 24 hours a day, the machine sold 1,600 baguettes in the first month alone.

"This is the bakery of tomorrow." -Jean-Louis Hecht

What could possibly be next???
