Blog: Unveiled - the best drinks related invention ever
Chris Brook-Carter | 4 July 2005
Suntory has created a vending machine that can dispense free beverages during times of emergency. The new machine, which can hold 324 250ml cans, has an emergency panel on the front, which releases the lock on the outside door.
The machine will be rolled out across Japan this month and, because they will be sited indoors, are unlikely to be abused by consumers wanting free drinks, Suntory believes.
What kind of emergency situations the machine can be used in, however, has not been specified.
