The R4...Vending Machine

Forget those mythical panty vending machines! This vending machine in Osaka's Den-Den Town is selling R4 devices.

Best part? They're all sold out.

Nintendo has been fighting the R4 piracy flash carts and fighting them hard. There's a court injunction against the Chinese R4 makers for "violation under Japan's laws". Yahoo! Auctions is prohibiting the device's sale.

Retailers in both Akihabara and Den-Den Town do continue to carry the R4 devices. However, stores are apparently trying to liquidate their inventory before it becomes illegal to sell R4 devices in Japan.
