First-ever 'Pizza ATM' opens in US
08 August 2016 Current Affairs: Pizza lovers in the US can now relish their favourite cheesy delicacy by using the first-ever 'Pizza ATM' in the country installed at a university campus.

The pizza vending machine on the campus of Xavier University (XU) in Ohio can hold seventy 12-inch pizzas and dispense them fresh and hot in just three minutes.

Customers can select what kind of pizza they want using the 24-hour machine's touchscreen.

The pizza ATM, which opens for public on August 10, has a temperature-controlled refrigeration system that allows the pizza to stay fresh and a convection oven that enables it to be served nice and hot in just three minutes.

Once users decide what type they want, the ATM then slides the option in the oven, cuts it into slices, places the pizza into a cardboard box and ejects the meal.

The cost of each pizza is around $10, with the ATM accepting credit and debit cards, as well as a student card, 'Tech Times' reported.

The ATM has a dependable process that preserves taste and quality,  the pizza and its ingredients never touch any part of the machine, French-based company Paline, which developed the ATM, said on its website.

The machine offers full remote communication for custom settings and tracking, real-time email and text alerts, webcam monitoring, remote error and shutdown detection.
