It may be 2am in Paris, but the French can still get their fresh bread fix. A recent invention by a French baker offers fresh, hot baguettes by way of a unique vending machine. Now it may seem sacriledge for the French to buy bread from anything other than a bakery. However, many bakers, including Jean-Louis Hecht, just can’t keep up with the demands of citizens wanting fresh bread at all hours of the day. To address this, Hecht invented the Pain Vending machine, where, for just one Euro, the vending machine will bake a pre-cooked loaf of bread and dispense the hot baguette in less than one minute. Voila! The French really do love their bread.

Maybe fresh French macarons are next. A girl can dream, right?
