Tokyo is a fascinating city for many reasons, and to get to know every side of it would take years if not an entire lifetime. One detail that sticks out is the abundance of vending machines in the metropolis. On busy intersections, narrow backstreets, and anywhere in between, these tiny stores are selling cold and hot drinks - and many other items. It's a completely automated transaction of goods, free from all quintessential points of human interaction. Yet, much like the 13 million human inhabitants of Tokyo, the robots all have found their own place in the Japanese capital. This book explores that relationship between machine and the city.
