These vending machine innovations range from Twitter-activated soda dispensers to VR retail concepts that celebrate convenience. While the traditional vending machine may be equipped with snacks and sodas, these examples are far more advanced and innovative.

They range from multi-media to book dispensers that make retail more convenient for those leading a busy lifestyle. Moreover, these examples utilize modern technology to create a custom and interactive experience for their users.

In addition to product-specific vending machine concepts, these innovations also include branded vending machines that are used by large companies and in a number of different industries.

Standouts from this list include flip flop vending machines that market Old Navy's summer collection and Social Media powered soda dispensers that let shoppers pay with a Tweet.
