Foodles is a new concept designed by the eponymous French startup which is equipping offices with a device that sits somewhere between a connected refrigerator and a vending machine.

Instead of dispensing chocolate bars and chip bags, this device supplies full meals that can be purchased using a smartphone or credit card. This fridge allows employers to offer employees heavily discounted meals that are packed with nutrients. Once a Foodles Fridge is installed, the company will arrive daily, filling the fridge with affordable sustenance that's available for as low as $6. Meal options will vary from week to week, offering users variety.

Although the installation fee is hefty, this connected refrigerator could provide a long term solution to smaller businesses in Europe who often provide their employees with subsidized lunch coupons.
