Singles Can Find Themselves A Date With This Vending Machine

This business has designed a vending machine selling dates to singles who are looking for online dating services’ low-tech alternative.

People can easily found a vending machine in Asian countries. Businesses are using them to sell almost anything. You can even find live crabs in these machines. However, one Hong Kong business has come up with a new idea to take vending machines to a brand new level. This business has designed a vending machine selling dates to singles who are looking for online dating services’ low-tech alternative.

Fate Capsule
The vending machine called the “Fate Capsule” received worldwide attention for its use.

The vending machine called the “Fate Capsule” received worldwide attention for its use. It is actually a vending machine that is multi-tiered with sperate compartments for women and men. These compartments dispense colored plastic capsules that contain singles’ contact details. To use the machine, you need to insert HK$20 or $2.5 in coins and wait until a fate capsule comes out. The capsule has a description written on it and inside is a prospective date’s contact information.

BT Reptile’s owner, Ben Tang, after seeing in Taiwan the same concept, brought the vending machine to Hong Kong. He, along with his girlfriends, is the one who carefully investigates those who wish to put their details in the fate capsule. Candidates can insert their information can be their name, age, weight, height, hobbies as well as a short introduction about the person in a Google doc file which is linked to Tang’s Facebook page. After receiving their contact details, Tang will contact and verify the candidate via WeChat.

Fate Capsule 2
To use the machine, you need to insert HK$20 or $2.5 in coins and wait until a fate capsule comes out.

The Fate Capsule was launched right before Valentine’s Day and became a huge hit. With many people wanting to try their luck with the machine, Tang had to limit the number of capsules coming out each day.

However, questions have been raised about the privacy matter after private contact information of the candidates was found on sites such as YouTube.

Fate Capsule 3
The Fate Capsule was launched right before Valentine’s Day and became a huge hit.

Despite that, because of the Fate Capsule’s popularity, many other businesses around Hong Kong have launched a version of their own.

Japan is truly the home for vending machines with over 5 million machines across the country, placed at city corners, train stations, and more. Not just that, this country is also the place where even the weirdest, out-of-the-world ideas can come true.
