A feature of every corner of Japan’s big cities, vending machines are getting more and more sophisticated. Machines can now choose the drink that suits you best and even sell fresh bananas. This Wall Street Journal video shows a Japanese vending machine that uses a camera to identify (guess?) your gender and age. Based on that data, and the weather, it recommends a particular drink to you. Interestingly, this report also presents banana vending machines as innovative. (Yeah, yeah, just look at it, etc.) But I’ve seen fruit vending machines around the US for years. Video courtesy of AFP.
