Vending machines have no longer remained a simple coin operated machine rolling out snacks and drinks. They have transformed to high tech systems rolling out candies, chocolates, gifts, toys, gadgets and even laptops. The new age machines are designed to serve the maximum by inducing innovation and ideas that sell.
Let's have a look at some of the most innovative vending machines of today:
Laptop vending machines: University campuses are equipping themselves with machines that lend laptops to students. The service would help techno students to access the machine as and when needed without carrying their own instruments and bothering about its security. When placed inside the machine the laptops get charged plus their hard drives get cleaned erasing any data and thus ruling our any threat to privacy.
Microwave vending machines: These machines are designed to serve hot and cold dishes and snacks to the customers. A preferred choice of college kids and school children, these machines are receiving rave reviews. Machines can be configured for any type of snacks like burritos, pizzas and pre packaged sandwiches. So, now you can have hot snacks just a click away!
Calorie counting vending machines: Machines that hint the calorie count of any item! These are used to alert the customer with the number of calorie he would throw in his body. The machines benefit the health conscious brigade of Gen X and Gen Y. Now, you can get the idea before indulging in unhealthy food habits. Most of the people are fond of this innovation and give it a thumbs up!
Smile checking vending machine: For all you people who lose their smile at the drop of a hat, here's something that would bring it back on your face. The machine with a "Smile-o-meter" uses face recognition technology to check whether the customer is smiling or not. It dispenses item only if you smile. Though funny it still gives you one more reason to smile.
These are few of the most 'out of the box' vending machines of the current era. These just give an idea of how the human mind can create jaw dropping stuff for itself!
