My suggestion that I left on one of their FB pics:

"I think for version 2.0 you should try to implement a carousel-type design (similar to those machines you would get a crappy egg salad sandwich or an 8 oz. carton of expired chocolate milk), thereby removing what appears to be this machine's inability to dispense any inventory at any time (i.e. different colors/weights unavailable until they reach the front of the dispenser coil). Everything else about this is a total WIN. Great job, and keep it up!"

I love how a lot of people are criticizing it...and there is only one of them out there. Give it some time to breathe.

I am fairly confident the people who are investing their time and money into this have thought of the basic things like security and discs getting stuck. Give them a chance to be successful.

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed.

Saw a few pros liking Teeboxx on the book of faces and thought it might be a new company coming out with cool high quality teebox materials.. This is interesting. Guarantee none will be around my town for a long while, but the idea is there.

Great stuff here and I wish them the best of luck -- and I think they have such a nice concept that their luck should be all icing on the cake to well-deserved success.

What I love the most is that it makes DG look like a real thing. It looks like it's from the future, where disc golf is legit. Back to the Future pt. 2 vibe

I know that the skatepark I used to go they had a cage around the vending machines and only holes where you could press button or grab your items.

Sitting outside in the hot Miami sun? This has to be indoors or the very least in the shade.
Maybe a refrigerated machine?

So if the guy before me gets jipped and I end up getting 2 discs for the price of 1 do I have to try to return the disc to its owner? How long would you guys wait before giving up?

My brother inlaw's family owns a vending service. I talked with him 4 years ago about getting some of his old spirals to sell Discs. Figured the logistics of power, theft, credit card swiping ability and all was more than I cared to figure out. Glad to see it is being tried somewhere.
