While at the mall today, I came across this new touch screen vending machine — I HAD to try it out! Until you take a closer look and see the dispenser tray and money slot, the new-age vending machine looks just like a monitor (which it is) that’s displaying ads. It also takes credit cards.
You don’t get that mechanical sound of an old school vending machine until your product drops into the bottom receiving tray, but the whole “touch screen” experience on a vending machine is really something else. To browse the products on this particular vending machine, I just touched buttons on either side of the screen to scroll through each product. Each product displays a unique and enticing animation. It’s apparent now that touch screen technology is everywhere — even on cars! Anyway, here’s a video of my experience with a touch screen vending machine.
