Vending machine keeps drinks cold without using power

Coca-Cola Japan and Fuji Electric Retail Systems, have collaborated to come  up with a vending machine that can keep drinks cool without using electricity  for up to 16 hours a day. The A011 vending machine only uses energy during night  time when electricity is also cheaper. It uses a vacuum insulated material and  air-tight doors to lock in the coldness during the day.

According to a press statement, the A011 can reduce the energy used during  the day by up to 95 percent. The innovation is a response to the Japan  earthquake disaster last year, that left the country with a major shortage of  electricity.
