I’ve got to say that, at first, I was really put off by the idea behind the SkyBox, a home vending machine – especially one that sold for $500. I figured that I could just as easily stock up my refrigerator and – surprise, surprise – reach in and get a cold beverage.

But then I realized something. Let’s say I’ve got a finished basement, rec room, or garage. I don’t want to put a whole refrigerator in there, and yet I don’t want to spend $100 or so on a mini-fridge. Voila! The SkyBox is a perfect fit. I do find it interesting that I can pay forty bucks to see my NFL team’s logo on the side of the SkyBox I own. I just wish I could put any logo on my SkyBox… if only I had a printing device in the home….

What do you think? Yea or nay on a $500 mini-vending machine?
