The Pronto Wine Vending Machine Only Serves the Sober

I had no idea how antiquated the Pennsylvania liquor laws were until I saw the Pronto Wine Vending Machine. It is illegal to sell wine at grocery stores in the great state of Pennsylvania, but not at vending machines.

Fortunately, the Pronto Wine Vending Machine won’t just hand over a bottle of wine to anybody. Customers have to submit to a breathalyser, scan their driver's license, and have their face confirmed by a state official on the CCTV. Silly way to circumvent an antiquated law or liquor store of the future? You decide.
