The future of digital vending

An internet connected vending machine – the VE Connect – is now being sold in the UK by vending operator Express Vending.

The machine comprises a huge 46″ colour touchscreen which can display a host of features, including rotating 3D product images, games, advertisements, detailed product descriptions and nutritional information.

The products within the machine are displayed on the full HD, 1080p resolution screen which can display advertising and promotional content.  Consumers can also use the screen to play games and interact with social media connections.

The machine features a mini-camera which can determine the user’s age and gender and display targeted information as they approach.

In addition, operators can choose to offer loyalty or gifting schemes, whereby the users can “gift” a product to a friend who will then receive a redeemable email.
