Glass front and stacked vending machines have seen little innovation when it comes to the ways consumers interact with these pieces of equipment. This presents a great opportunity to integrate advanced technologies to deliver interactive and engaging experiences between consumers and Vendors.
We want to change the way consumers think about equipment and create an entirely new futuristic look, feel, and capability for a Coke vending machine. The machine should no longer be considered a thirst destination, but a destination for unique experiences using technology. No idea is too big; however keep in mind it has to be a design that can actually be produced.
Please submit the following:
1) Your design for the "vending machine" of tomorrow (sketches, schematics, slides, etc.)
2) Also include a written description describing how the vending machine would work and why it will change the way consumers think about vending machines
The key challenge is to develop a new delivery system to fit the futuristic look. The biggest limitation to current vending machines has always been the archaic delivery system.
