What do you do with an unused locker beside holding those smelly gym clothes? One innovative student wanted to use his locker for more and made an awesome soda vending machine.
“Lockers just aren’t what they used to be. With so many schools moving to electronic devices for books, lockers become less of a space for your books, and more of a question of: “What am I going to do with this?”
What if you could use that space for your own vending machine? In this Instructable, I’ll tell you how I came up with the idea, how I designed it, how I solved a few problems along the way, and how it all turned out! So pop open a can of your favorite drink and come along!
A little less than a year ago, on the way back from lunch to U.S History class, I looked at one of the lockers and thought “how cool would it be to have a vending machine fit entirely inside of a locker?” Shortly after, I mentioned the idea to a few classmates at my table. We then talked about it for a while as a joke, but the further we went on, to me, the idea seemed entirely possible!
I began drawing up rough sketches to the side of whatever assignment we had in front of us. Before going any further, the next day, I brought a measuring tape to the school, and during lunch, I went to the locker to get every measurement I could. A few days later, school was out for the summer.”
