Perfect for the indecisive drinker, JR East Water Business Co. has developed these unique Japanese recommendation vending machines. The idea is to enhance the customer's experience by providing them with a drink that is personal to them.

These Japanese recommendation vending machines have a touchscreen panel with sensors that determine the characteristics of the customer. Recommended labels on the drinks inside the machine will then light up as choices that you might prefer over others. So far, one test machine has been added to a Tokyo station, and the company plans to add about 500 more to other areas in Tokyo by March 2011.
