What’s new from Nike?  Soccer Ball Vending Machines!  At Chelsea Piers in NYC, balls are often lost after big goals are scored. Now, the game doesn’t have to stop.  I suppose the machines also cater to impulsive soccer players…

Implications - Vending machines have traditionally been used to dispense candy bars and other sweets, but innovative companies such as Nike are re-imagining this traditional machine. By filling up a vending machine with a product, businesses not only create buzz, but they also cut down on the cost of running and operating a retail store location. This is an ingenious idea that many brands should take note of. Stats for Soccer Ball Vending Machine Trending: Older & Buzzing
