Luxury Item Vending Machine

What essentials do you need for a stay in New York City? The Hudson Hotel in New York City has an intriguing take on this concept launching Semi-Automatic at Hudson, an oversized vending machine that is stocked not just with everyday travel necessities but with items that are both luxurious and a little odd.

The machine includes copies of Catcher in the Rye, a Paul Smith toothbrush, a Ouija Board, a Dagger Rosary by jewelry designer Pamela Love, a black sequin mini skirt by Haute Hippie, Blueprint Cleanse, a personal portrait shoot with photographer Ben Watts, 24k gold handcuffs by Kiki De Montparnasse and a rental of a red Ferrari 599 GTB from Gotham Dream Cars.

There is also an original Hudson t-shirt, created exclusively for Hudson by artist Chrissie Miller of SOPHOMORE.

The machine is available to guests 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will present new luxury items on a regular basis. Prices range from $4 (for the basics) to $8,000 for the Ben Watts photo shoot and $10,000 to rent the Ferrari 599 GTB for one week.

The machine functions by a touch-operated screen and it only takes credit cards.
