Digital Vending Machine


Japanese ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. Industrial designer Fumie Shibata put a high-tech spin on a simple concept. Personally I never use vending machines, but if this piece came state side, I might have something to put my spare change into.
The vending machine flaunts an impressive 47-inch multi-touch display screen. That’s bigger than the T.V. in my house man. What’s more is that it’s not just a vending machine. It utilizes a camera to process the gender and approximate age of the customer to display possible drink recommendations.
It even makes use of external data, such as time of day, temperature, and season. So for you early birds that would mean hot coffee, or a nice cold iced tea on a hot summer day.
