Human vending machines, IDs (drivers license calculations, credit cards), And PRETTY website

Japanese Human Vending Machine.
Doesn't actually distribute humans, but rather, is powered by a human.

Looks to be a promo, but amusing nonetheless.

Unique ID: http://www.highprogrammer.com/alan/numbers/
Provides random things, like Driver's License Numbers calculation and verification. I tried the Maryland one, and it's surprisingly accurate.

There's also, linked from that site, an anatomy of credit cards: http://www.merriampark.com/anatomycc.htm
which links to a frightfully long article on credit cards: http://euro.ecom.cmu.edu/resources/elibrary/everycc.htm
Quite interesting.

And a friend pointed this out to me:
http://www.panic.com/coda/
It's not actually the application I'm interested in - I haven't tried that. It's the website that's amazing.
