The TrinkeTron is a mobile performative installation invented in 2014. This artificially intelligent vending machines engages prospective customers in a deadpan robotic drawl, enticing passersby to insert $5. After a brief instructional rap, the bewildered customer inputs their preferences by engaging the unit's hexagonal knobs, and a custom-crafted packaged novelty pops out one minute later. The Trinketron produces keychains, fridge magnets, fashion pins, home decor items, figurines, bad jokes, and moments of fleeting material gratification.
