THE NEXT ERA OF VENDING
knew stopping for a quick, refreshing drink could be so much
fun? The University of Houston is now home to two of the most
innovative Coca-Cola vending machines located at the University
Center and Philip Guthrie Hall. Each machine gives its customers
an interactive experience using sight, sound, touch and motion
as they make their drink selection.
The new interactive machines still carry all your favorite
Coca-Cola products but has enhanced the transaction process by
using cutting-edge technology. Customers can check out their
options on a 46-inch touch screen door that allows them to
scroll through selections or spin the product images to show its
ingredients and information. At the top of the screen, videos
will showcase Coca-Cola promotions and even customized pictures
of the university. If the customer sticks around for a minute,
they can even test their skills at one of the interactive games
or browse applications and promotions.
The two machines were installed during the first week of school
and will accept cash or credit cards. The Coca-Cola interactive
vending machines are Energy Star certified as well to support
our green mission. The screen will dim during low traffic times
to save energy when not in use.
