In Francis Ford Coppola’s Café Zoetrope in San Francisco, an odd machine stands in the middle of one of the dining rooms. It’s a tall, black-and-orange cone with a lighted monolith sticking out of its top. The kiosk, built by the French publishing company Short Edition, is called a Short Story Dispenser. It’s the first of its kind in the United States.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Technology meets with tradition in the form of a machine being used by the Free Library of Philadelphia, which is aimed at getting more people to read.
Think of this machine as an ATM for free stories.
“It has one, three, and five-minute stories. You press the button, prints out a short story on essentially receipt paper, and it’s yours to walk away with for free and read, and enjoy,” said Andrew Nurkin with the Free Library.
