Anger release vending machines

Now here’s an invention with a lot of potential – anger release vending machines full of plates, glasses and porcelain figurines that you can break to calm yourself down.

If you haven’t done it yourself, I’m sure you’ve seen it in movies – breaking stuff to calm the nerves. Most housewives prefer kitchen items, like plates or glasses, but porcelain decorations work just as well. Pick them up, smash them into the floor/wall and feel yourself calm down almost instantly. It’s called destruction therapy, or destructotherapy. The only problem is you can’t really practice it wherever you are, unless you fancy carrying a bunch of plates with you wherever you go.

Luckily, designers Ronnie Yarisal and Katja Kublitz at Yarisal & Kublitz have come up with an ingenious solution – anger release vending machines filled with whatever item you feel like smashing to calm down and release the pressure. Just like other dispensers, all you have to do is punch in the product code, pay, and there you have it – instant anger management session.

Brilliant idea, finally someone actually starts producing these things.
