A special Racked operative is currently in line at the Uniqlo giveaway in Times Square, where Uniqlo has set up a "human vending machine" to hand out their Heat Tech innerwear. "There are four lines of people moving pretty fast," she reports. "They only have about 1000, so if you're not here right now, you're probably going to miss out." The machine, by the way, does not look like a machine—it "looks like a temporary structure they put together and painted silver." [RackedWire; Previously]
