Vending machines can now be used for virtually anything, the only limits being your imagination. A vending machine is simply a box to hold anything but your thinking.
Vending Machine Trends
Touchscreens are everywhere, so why not on vending machines too? In combination with cashless vending, these much friendlier interfaces provide a much easier and more intuitive way for customers to experience the vending process.
The touch screen also doubles as a video advertising space when idle. Larger screens of various sizes can also be mounted for more impact, ultimately leveraging the prime location of the machine to target consumers or inform staff.

So if you want to give your staff easy access to a range of nourishing, wholesome food and drinks, make the next addition to your canteen a fresh food vending machine from Vending Solutions.
THE FIRST EVER VENDING MACHINE THAT GIVES RUGBY PLAYERS WHAT THEY WANT MOST FOR DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST.
One cold Salta Beer per tackle.
As crazy as it sounds, the machine will only serve you beer if you tackle the machine hard enough – as it has an in-built sensor to assess the impact.
BOS TWITTER-ACTIVATED VENDING MACHINE
The BevMax 4-45, affectionately known as Bev, is more robot than vending machine and was first introduced to the public at the 2012 Design Indaba.
She was initially triggered using tokens and was rigged with speakers and cameras to show her inner workings and interact with delegates at the conference. She has since been tweaked to respond to tweets, delivering a BOS Ice Tea whenever her hashtag is used in a tweet. The idea was conceptualised by BOS’ digital agency Cow Africa, who worked closely with designers Marc Nicholson and Lyall Sprong from Thingking to bring Bev to life and UK-based social media agency, RAAK, to fully realise the Twitter integration.
HUG A MACHINE TO GET A FREE DRINK
The beverage company wants you to literally embrace its brand.
A vending machine in Coca Cola’s iconic red color and with the words ‘Hug Me’ displayed in the brand’s signature white font, has showed up overnight at the National University of Singapore. What makes this vending machine special is that it responds to physical hugs before dispensing a free can of Coke. Students on campus were pleasantly surprised to spot the Coca-Cola Hug Machine, which was installed as part of the company’s ‘Open Happiness’ campaign. Before long, there were lines of people waiting to give their affection to the dispenser.
