PepsiCo Social Vending

This week, the Pepsi Company announced their new vending machine that is focused on social interaction. It’s amongst the first using a touch screen. It will allow you to input a friend’s name and contact number and then send them a code to pick up a beverage from the machine. It will also allow you to record a personal video as well as display nutritional information. This is a cool concept but how likely are people to catch on? I fear for the day when anything you buy will be automatically posted to your Facebook.
