Super Gumball machine.

Pretty impressive. Those bubblegum vending machines have been banned in my country because people were using them for gambling purposes and it became a huge problem.

How can you gamble on a gumball machine? Just bet on what color will come out?

At least I bet teeth doctors who want to increase business will like it.

I could be wrong, but I don't think you would want to chew on these. I believe they're for bouncing(rubber).

I'm pretty sure you are right paulinusa. Those look the the wham-o super balls from when we were kids, amazingly bouncy toys.

You gamble on the color of course, sarahsuz25, but here it would be boring since orange seems to be dominant. The blue one next to it would probably contain bubblegums. And for your CM idea, I could just see them bouncing into a turquoise blue swimming pool. Would be a nice idea for color printers too or 3D TVs.

My kids love these super balls, you throw them, and they jump around like crazy, rip up my Japanese shoji paper window thingamajis, !&($&*(&(&!!!!!!But, yes, my kids and many kids all around the world love these super balls.

Yeah, I know that these aren't gums, but my most serious problem is that I didn't type a enter key enough so that my comment is a quote.
