After debuting to some controversy, this automated pantry box for workspaces syncs to a pay as you go app. Named after the convenience stores, startup Bodega is about "combining the convenience of online ordering with the instant gratification of real world retail." Their smart office vending machines are stocked with everyday essentials and automatically charge your credit card when something is removed.

Filled with non-perishable goods, the 5 foot wide pantry box has a smartphone application employees can use to access the kiosk and pay with their debit or credit card. The small store is also equipped with built-in cameras and other technology to determine demand and re-stock accordingly. With 30 locations already in New York City, Bodega demonstrates how shopping experiences can be made easier for consumers.
