Welcome to the Future of Vending Machines

December 18, 2011

The future has arrived and it's a touch screen vending machine. Japan's Sanden, a large manufacturer of vending machines, worked with Okaya Electronics and Intel to develop this concept. The machine features an entirely transparent touch-screen interface that allows users to simultaneously make selections while viewing their choices. 

While not in use, the machine features a large digital clock and animations designed to attract the attention of passerbys. 

Oh yeah, well the machine can't make you a pizza or sell you meat. Maybe people would be more careful with it though.
