Everybody loves gold, but we didn't know it was accepted everywhere.
We've already got vending machines that dispense Bentleys, so why not bullion?
Gold to Go works like your every day ATM, except you don't get cold hard cash. Customers slide in their credit card or dollar bills and get cold hard bricks of gold.
The machines have been a success in Europe, and now Thomas Geissler wants to expand to the U.S., with stops in Florida and Las Vegas. He said his company will issue about 35 machines in new locations this year.
The weight of the bars range from one gram up to one ounce, and the values are automatically updated every 10 minutes to match international markets. It also spits out gold coins from all over the world.
Geissler hasn't announced when or where in Florida he will locate his pots of gold, but he might be a couple of decades too late for South Beach style.
Gold chains, teeth and rims are so 1990s. And purses are a bit too small to be carrying the bulky bars around on Ocean Drive.
On the bright side, it has to be harder for the door man to turn down a gold bar bribe to get into the VIP at the club.
