Soft drinks, electronics, nutrient-free snacks — you can get all of those from a vending machine. But what type of vending machine is sorely needed but doesn’t yet exist? Share your automated retail fantasies with us!
I cannot claim these ideas as my own. Trend Hunter editor Jaime Neely suggests several futuristic machines. His favourite, and it would also be mine – is the Swap-o-Matic. You place an item into the machine, which surveys it, gives you credits, which you then use for a different item to take home. See on TrendHunter.
Beside this machine there would be the short story Lit machine, with stories displayed as if tasty snacks. Mentioned by Alyson Wyers on TrendHunter. It could be advertised as: Bite-Sized-Reads.
Aside: I would also station a freshly squeezed organic juice dispenser next door, for thirsty souls.
