Well, “open source electronics” vending machine might be more accurate, as only three of the eighteen stocked items, by my count, are actually Arduino variants. The rest are shields and various other kits. Plus the obligatory Ramen. The vending machine is located at MakerBot headquarters in Brooklyn, and the photo is by our own Matt Mets. You know you’ve been doing this too long when you can identify all these products on sight. For the rest of us, Matt’s Flickr stream has a handy legend.
