Coca Cola Japan to launch LCD touchpanel vending machines by the year-end
Coca Cola Japan unveiled new Coca Cola vending machine which sports a 46-inch (1 mt tall and 57 cm wide) LCD touchpanel installed in the front. Currently it not only allows you to choose your drink by just touching the display but also shows the commercials of the Coca products and the area’s map. However, it is planned to improved further to allow, for example, downloading close-by restaurants info to the mobile phones.
Coca Cola Japan have not disclosed how many of these new vending machines will be positioned by the end of the year, but currently they have around 980.000 vending machines across the country.
