LUCERNE, Switzerland -- The faculty at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences came up with a unique way to get teenagers interested in science and engineering. They built what has been dubbed "the world's most complicated gumball machine."

The high-tech bulk vender relies on three robots to deliver a single piece of ball gum. Although it looks more like an amusement redemption machine than vending machine, its simple application robotics has proved popular with young students.
