ATM: from which one can withdraw food

On my lunchbreak today I passed what appeared to be an ATM. I was thinking about taking out some money when I noticed it was rather odd viz a large trapdoor to the side.

On closer inspection this turned out to be a fully automated supermarket. You use the screen to browse and select items and a robot plucks them off the shelves (you can see through the glass windows next door) and pops them into the hatch.

I bought a coke.
