smile activated vending machine

Unilever, a household name when it comes to fast moving consumer goods, and here they are with a brand new ice cream vending machine which comes with a twist – it will use face-recognition technology to measure your grin, and if it qualifies as a “smile”, then it will dispense some ice cream for you to savor – perfect during those sweltering summer months. Not only that, it will also snap a photo which can be uploaded to Facebook courtesy of the machine’s built-in 3G connectivity. This “Share Happy” branded interactive vending machine is touted to be introduced to high-traffic consumer locations like shopping malls worldwide within the next one and half years.
