And Finally - Something for the corner of your Shopping Centre…

With all available reporters either covering the News International shenanigans, or taking cover themselves, the stories for And Finally are a little thin on the ground this month

In times of a news drought, ordinarily we look across the pond for some American madness; what shocked us with this little treasure is that the invention hails from good old Blighty! 

Concept Shed, based in Falmouth, has unveiled the ultimate in tacky mall machines. AutoWed is a novelty wedding machine offering a quick hitch, a couple of rings and a personalised certificate for just £1. This wonderful machine plays a specially composed intro version of the Wedding March, after which, customers can select their type of union from gay, straight, lesbian or best friend forever. A truly romantic robotic voice conducts the ceremony, before customers take their vows - pressing one button for "I do" and another for "Escape". Souvenirs from this experience are a wedding receipt and two plastic rings in egg-shaped capsules. Nice!

 We were very pleased to hear from Concept Shed that they came up with the idea last year and built the unit especially for Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Detroit. That’s alright then!
