2012 Picture of the Week (12/52) – Touch Screen Vending Machine

It seems touch screen devices are getting more and more popular. Smartphones, tablet computers, shopping mall directories, ATMs, and now vending machines. I took this picture on the Tokyo-bound Tokaido Line platform in Ofuna Station.

Plenty to drink, but I didn't try it.

  1. You are right about the growing popularity of touch screens, they seem to be everywhere. I don’t remember seeing a touch vending machine during my last visit to Tokyo a few months ago (December), but maybe they were just being installed at that time.

  3. Did you know that these machines recommend drinks to you depending on you age and gender?
    It “looks” at you with a camera and decides which drinks would suit you.

    I wrote a post about them:
