Turno is a consignment vending machine, an approach to the challenge of creating distributed, location- or interest-specific communities of sellers and buyers. Unlike traditional vending machines that only sell goods, Turno facilitates the transaction of new and used goods between members of a given community. Building on successful market-building models of eBay and other online marketplaces, Turno aims to re-establish a sense of time and place into transactions between remote individuals.
