Jake Bronstein is on a mission to get New Yorkers to have a good time with his Fun Idea Machine, a gumball machine that dispenses ideas that people can use to have child-like, wide-eyed fun.
He says, As you grow up you worry about whats cool or rely on drinking to have fun. There are millions of things you did as a kid that you dont do now.
Along with fun ideas like combing your hair like Donald Trump or writing a B and an R on a one dollar bill so it reads boner, each egg dispenses a toy, a lucky penny, and a quarter.
Bronstein explains, I only wanted to charge people 25 cents but the machine is configured for 50, so I put one quarter back in. With the other quarter I buy the toys from the supermarket across the street because theyre cooler. From a financial standpoint, this is a real loser.
