Odd German Vending Machines

I remember being shocked the first time I saw a paperback novel for sale in a vending machine on a train platform in Berlin.  Such an awesome thing to do.  Just now I was translating a poem by Peter Handke, and came across the word "Grillautomaten".  Not completely sure what this was, I turned to Google, which was not terribly helpful, except that it led me to this amazing video.
