Engadget.com has a great story on this Giant Touchscreen Vending Machine.
“A Touchscreen Vending Machine?” you ask, “Isn’t that just wasteful?”
Well– yes and no.
Yes, sort of, because it is a giant touchscreen on a VENDING MACHINE— so those damn touchscreens are a helluva lot cheaper to produce then we have been led to believe.
But NO, because this machine also SEES YOU and offers you beverages based on your body stereotype (manufacturers claim the software is VERY accurate). You can still order any beverage you want but when this damn thing comes to Fat-Ass America, I’m buying stock in Yoo-hoo!
