The Acura drink dispenser is a virtual reality vending machine that is designed with consumer convenience and user experience in mind. The invention was recently set-up in a Japanese metro station and impressed by-passers who enjoyed its smooth and interactive interface.

The digitized vending machine features a virtual drink shelf that displays a variety of hot and cold branded beverages. Once users have selected their drink of choice, they are given more product details including the nutrition information of their chosen product. Whether purchasing an energy drink or a can of hot soup, users will be given access to calorie information and will find out about the health benefits of products.

This virtual reality vending machine changes the way we make on-the-go purchases and uses technology to enhance consumer experience.
