A microchip mobile vending machine might be coming to a city near you now that French-based company 'Free' is coming up with a new idea to serve SIM cards right out of a self-serve distributor.

Free is proving once again that it can remain much leaner than its competitors by replacing brick and mortar stores with light and lean vending machines. The automated venders enable customers to subscribe to one of Free's plans by paying with their credit cards and receiving a SIM card on the spot.

The best part is that the company already signed a deal with Maison de la Presse and Mag Presse stores to jumpstart the project. Expect Free to roll out vending machines to hundreds of stores near you.
