There is no Great Stagnation in Cupcakes

The Washington Post Reports that progress marches on:

ome August, Sprinklesplans to turn on a 24-hour cupcake dispensing machine at its bakery, located at 3015 M St. NW.

Resembling an ATM, the machine features a touchscreen that allows customers to scroll through a menu of cupcake flavors. Once a selection is made and paid for by credit card, a robotic arm grabs the pastry from a shelf. The cupcake, neatly boxed up, is then dispensed through a turnstile.

I’m reminded of the old automat. Perhaps not a great advance in technology, but an advancement in service is still progress.
