The Sap Hana-powered facial recognition vending machine not only remembers returning customers, but is also capable of recommending personalized purchases. The smart vending machine has a touchscreen interface that lets custumers scan their smartphone to order and pay. This is in addition to the facial recognition software that will recommend food, drinks and promotional offers.

To utilize this technology, users must download the Sap Hana app that will keep track of their purchasing history while also providing a method for customers to offer feedback to the company. This way users can share experiences and purchases, while also interacting with other people who have the app and exchange gifts.

This facial recognition vending machine is not only interactive, but the future of retail.
