MIT's Media Lab is where brilliant people work on some of the most creative tech projects in the world. And if they get hungry there's a vending machine just down the hall. But you won't find chips or cookies. This vending machine exclusively stocks Soylent. And it takes Bitcoin. And it has a QR code. I'm suddenly terrified for our future.

Ethan Zuckerman tweeted out this photo of the vending machine on Thursday afternoon. And I'm not sure if it's an optimistic vision of efficiency to come or a dystopian warning that we better get our crap in order pretty quickly.
