WSYX reporter Myles Harris was in the field in Columbus, Ohio, reporting Tuesday when his mom happened to drive by.



The idea comes from the company "Neon," which hopes to make digital art sales available to everyone ... and it seems like it's working.

The machine already sold out of NFTs but it has since been restocked.

You can check it out for yourself 24/7.
