This SIM card vending machine from 'Free' was introduced to take some of the more well-established mobile carriers head-on, without the need to set up a physical retail store. With this unique vending machine, people are able to sign up for mobile phone plans, pay with a credit card and receive a SIM card from the machine.

Since there are tons of people who just can't seem to function without a phone in hand, this is a clever way to automate the process of providing one of the most essential phone components. Earlier this spring, it was announced that these SIM card vending machines from Free would be debuting at hundreds of stores in France.
