Japanese Vending Machines: The New Extreme
This past spring, I had my first encounter with Japanese vending machines. Hot coffee in a can? Cappuccino made to order? Yes and yes. Amazing.
But apparently it doesn’t stop there. Now in Tokyo: order your drink using a 47-inch touchscreen. Oh, and receive beverage recommendations based on age, gender, and previous selections.
My prediction for version 2.0: personalized playlists and hot meal options with your drink.
