Do you watch those Japanese people using those automatically vending machine to buy most daily stuff, besides soda? Think about you can purchase your daily stuff like, shampoo, toothpaste, hairspray, razor etc...... from those automatically vending machine, similar to the miniature of retail stores. It will actually increase convenience, and also save a lot of money from renting a huge place for selling stuff like that, don't you think? A vending machine really save a lot of renting space, and cutting a lot of overhead cost. It might not widely used in U.S. yet, but it is really popular in Japan. Think of Red Box. This great idea almost push to Block Buster to the brink of out - of - business. Great idea coming every single day.
