The Cupcake ATM at Sprinkles Is Very Lackluster

Listen, it gives out some tasty treats, but it doesn't have an adorable cartoon character thanking you for getting a cupcake. The Cupcake ATM has been at the flagship Sprinkles location for a while now, but why it exists when you can pop inside has little reason.

The machine is simple: Touch the screen to activate it, choose your tasty treat, slide your card and enjoy.

Why a pair of robotic hands don't come out to give you a high-five or the interface doesn't  have some sort of an anime character spouting something funny makes it the most boring, but working machines.

I mean, it's a cupcake ATM, it should be about fun. It should do something eye-catching. It's just lacks any reason for existing.

Stick to cupcakes Sprinkles, but don't ever try anything near consumer electronics again.
