Vending machines. What would life be like without them? They let you buy water whenever, wherever. Hungry? Just drop a few coins into the slot and buy a snack or two to ride you over until dinner.

TV dinners are normally available in convenience stores, but these food stands might soon go out of commission if these EatWave vending machines prove to be a huge hit. First things first, what's EatWave? Well, it's basically a refrigerated vending machine with an integrated microwave that nukes your grub so you get it from the tray steaming hot.

Just the way you like it.

The only thing that might be holding people back from deploying these vending machines to all corners of your city is its price: it carries a hefty tag of about $12,000.

But for all diners and snackers on the go, this seems like a pretty good and convenient idea, isn't it?
