Macbook Vending Machine

I just learned that Drexel’s Hagerty Library is not only lending out Macbook Pros to those on campus, but is doing so via a vending machine type interface.

Drexel University introduced a 24-hour, self-service vending machine located in the W. W. Hagerty Library that will dispense MacBooks for use by students, faculty and staff. Drexel is the third university on the East Coast to introduce the kiosk, which holds up to 12 MacBooks that could be checked out free by anyone with a Drexel ID for five hours.

The kiosk provides a 24-hour solution to students who want to work on projects and assignments or study at the library late into the night.

Found via Gizmodo that pointed me to Drexel’s official release.
