Friendly Vending Machine Dispenses Cans With a Smile: "Vending machines might keep us fed and caffeinated when we’re away from home, but they’re not exactly friendly, are they? They just sit there, waiting for you to do all of the work of choosing between the delicious choices. From a design perspective, the interaction patterns required for using a traditional vending machine are nowhere near pleasant for the human user. Industrial designer Guus Baggermans decided that something had to be done, so he created a friendly vending machine that would interact pleasantly with human users."
