Getting a whole pizza pie has gotten a lot easier for students at Ohio State University.

The school has a pizza vending machine, which is stocked with about 70 pizzas. All are stored inside a refrigeration unit, until someone orders a pie.

A robotic arm selects the correct box that has a cheese, pepperoni or specialty pizza. It places it in an oven and bakes it as the student or faculty member waits. Then, it comes right out of a slot.

The 10-inch pizzas cost $8 and are ready in about three to four minutes. The university debuted the pizza vending machine Tuesday, and it is located in the school’s Morrill Tower.
