You can buy live crabs from a vending machine?

Wow, it seems that in Japan you can now purchase live crab from a simple vending machine. We thought we were cool here in America with food and ice cream in vending machines but crabs, that’s off the wall. The vending machine carries Chinese Mitten Crabs which care kept at 40 degrees F or 5 degrees Celsius which sends the crabs into a hibernation state and keeps them fresh. The video below shows more about this vending machine and other machines that are popping up in Japan. I personally wish we could have banana vending machines like in the video.
