Vending machine billboard offers free shirts for tweets

The most recent marketing campaign for fashion designer Allen Solly has seen the company exchange tweets for men’s shirts.

Brand mentions on social networks have already become sufficiently sought-after to warrant payback of free wifi and pizza in the recent past. Joining this trend, the most recent marketing campaign for Indian fashion designer Allen Solly has seen the company exchange tweets for men’s shirts.

Created by the India branch of advertising agency Ogilvy, the campaign saw a large billboard kitted out with 60 shirts and a mechanism that pushed each one forward a small amount everytime someone tweeted with the hashtag ‘#RainingSolly’. According to reports, people around the billboard were then invited to use their phones to interact with it, while a large screen displayed their tweets. The user who tweeted at the moment a shirt was released could collect it for free. The following video shows how the campaign worked:

Microwave Equipped Vending Machine

A company called EatWave Vending is trying to diversify the crap in vending machines by equipping one with a refrigerator and a microwave so it can prepare pre-packaged burritos and sandwiches:

Since the machine is built on a standard chassis it can be configured to stock all of the standard vending machine snack fare. But with the microwave built-in the food is always sealed in its packaging which helps avoid the pitfalls of a shared oven that usually ends up looking and smelling disgusting on the inside.

If you’re stomach is already growling for nuked vending machine food, it will cost about $12,000 to get one in your break room.

Japan’s Oddest Vending Machines

Everyone knows how vending machines have become an important part of life to the Japanese. In fact, there are only few places left without them.

It was reported that about 5.6 million coin-operated and card-operated “vendos” can be found across Japan. That’s quite a number — surpassing New Zealand’s population!

From canned sodas to panties, even to cars, you name it, surely there’s a vending machine somewhere that has it!

Ella´s Kitchen Launches World´s First Vending Machine for Babies

The world’s first vending machine for babies, especially designed to dispense healthy snacks for tiny tots has been revealed.

The vending machine has taken over four months to develop and construct with bespoke features to make it easy for toddlers to operate.

Standing at only 115cm tall, it is sized for the average one year old to dispense their snacks.

Thought to be the world’s tiniest, the vending machine has been created by baby and toddler food brand Ella’s Kitchen following new research revealing that up to 82 per cent of British parents struggle to find healthy foods for babies and toddlers whilst on the move.

The mini vending machine will be filled with Ella’s Kitchen’s snacks

The research also found that 58 per cent of parents have been forced to feed their children un-healthy foods such as sweets or crisps when they’re out of the house due to the lack of healthier options available.

The mini vending machine will be filled with Ella’s Kitchen’s snacks to show parents that foods for kids on the go don’t need to be restricted to sugary or salty snacks.

It will vend 12 varieties of snacks from Smoothie Fruits to Nibbly Fingers and Puffits.

My only question is ´where are these babies getting the money from?´

Despotic Vending Machine Demands Tribute in Exchange For Rice Snacks

There are plenty of things I’d do for free food. Dress up as a cow? Sure. Dress up as Spiderman? Even better. But kneel on the ground, raise my arms in the air and “bow to the almighty one?”

Eh, I’ll think about it.

Proving the human disposition to submit to our technological overlords, Australian food company Fantastic Snacks, along with ad agency Clemenger BBDO, has created a completely free vending machine to dispense its “Fantastic Delites” rice cracker snacks. Its only request, in lieu of the spare change in your pocket, is you do whatever the machine asks you to do.

Simple enough, right? Press a button about a hundred times, get a free snack. It’s so easy a grandmother could do it, and does. But soon the machine, dubbed the “Delite-o-Matic,” gets demanding. Would you press the button a thousand times, it asks hordes of random passerbys. 5,000 maybe? Would you dance like a chicken, do push-ups or start a conga line? Apparently people would, and feel ecstatic enough afterward to jump around, pump their fists and raise their glorious prizes up in victory. All that for a box of chips.

In Spain, lemonade made cheaper when temperature rises

Spanish marketing agency Momentum Madrid has come up with a campaign for Coca-Cola’s Limon Y Nada still lemonade, which offers customers discounts when the temperature outside rises.

Vending machines have been a springboard for many new ideas we’ve spotted over the years, including ones dispensing underwear, machines that know if the customer is an adult and ones powered by pedalling. Now Spanish marketing agency Momentum Madrid has come up with a campaign for Coca-Cola’s Limon Y Nada lemonade, which offers customers discounts when the outdoor temperature rises.

According to a MarketingNews.es report, some 18 machines with integrated thermometers were installed in traditional summertime locations such as water or theme parks in Spain. The temperature was shown on a large display above the machines and the cans, priced at EUR 2 each at 25 degrees Celsius or less, took a 30 percent price cut (EUR 1.40) at 26 to 29 degrees and cost EUR 1 when it hit 30 degrees or more. The machines feature an application developed by Varadero Software Factory that facilitates the price change capability.

The vending machine is kept at a constant temperature of 5-10 degrees Celsius to make sure that the crabs are in a constant state of hibernation. They are also packed in custom-shaped plastic packages.

Better yet, if by chance you get a dead crab, you get three crabs for free!

A customer who has tried the crabs said, “Two days ago, I was passing by, and saw that they were cheaper than at the markets. I was curious, so I got two. They tasted all right, so I’m back today for more.”

It looks as if the busy commuters of Nanjing will never go to bed on an empty stomach again.

Fridge Vending Machine Lets You Buy Food Without Waiting In Line

The ShelfXVending Fridge is a self-service machine that allows customers to purchase products like beverages, fruit and sandwiches without having to go up to the checkout. The company combines QR codes, RFID cards, mobile apps and smart shelves to provide flexible food vending and inspire further self-checkout strategies. Customers can use the ShelfX app (which stores their account and payment information) to scan the fridge’s QR code with their phone. This unlocks the door and lets them remove any items they want to buy. An RFID-enabled XCard, which acts the same as the app, can also be scanned to open the fridge.
