New technologies are revolutionising the world of vending machines - for the better. From cashless payments to facial recognition technology to enhanced energy efficiency, vending machines of the future will no longer simply churn out chips and water bottles when asked. The Luce X2 vending machine, for example, uses a motion sensor to detect when customers are approaching and a camera to recognise the consumer. It then offers a personalised menu based on the purchase history of that customer - and checks their identification against the law to ensure they cannot purchase restricted products, like cigarettes or alcohol.
