Well, in the French city of Grenoble, vending machines that print out short stories have been installed so that people can make their unproductive moments productive.
Built by a publishing company called Short Edition, the short stories are printed out on paper receipts.
They are placed in eight public locations like the city hall and libraries.
The stories are original and free of cost, so anyone can interested can read.

The stories are written by members of the Short Edition community.
The concept was inspired to provide good quality literature to people and make few moments productive.
