Back in 2005 I picked Josh Klein’scrow vending machine” as one of my favorite projects from the ITP show… and now a year later it seems to be happening – these birds made off with $4,000… So many questions, who is giving them peanuts, is this based off Josh’s work or the other way around, a fake?

Bill is the owner of a company that manufactures and installs car wash systems. Bill installed one of these systems in in Frederick, MD. The issue arose when the buyer complained he was losing significant amounts of money each day. He even accused Bill and his employees of ripping him off.

Naturally, Bill proceeded towards investigating the issue. He decided to mount a video camera to see who exactly is stealing all the coins. Imagine his surprise when he saw several birds carrying all the coins in their nest. After following the birds, he discovered its quarters on the top of a car wash and more in a tree, an estimated amount of $4,000.
