High-end vending machine powered by artificial intelligence
NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - With a swipe of a credit card, a tap of a smartphone, or a touch of a thumbprint, you can open the door to technology unlike ever before.
After 3 years of development, Tom Murn -- who has 20 years of vending experience -- introduced Lisa, his high-tech retail machine to test on the market for the past year and a half.
Inside Lisa's glass door, the products are endless and all customized. From shaving kits to watches, to a simple bag of chocolate, the user-friendly design allows customers to pick up or put down any item and then simply walk away. The technology tracks your transaction. This might look like a vending machine but it is fully automatic retail experience.
And soon it is going to get even better. Lisa's smarter sister Vicki will take over the market and change the retail shopping experience for good.
Vicki will have some big changes. The music on ads, for instance, will be audible only to those standing in front of her. She can also scan your eye to open the door, but most importantly, she can answer your questions. For example, you can ask her if a particular medication is good for a cold and she will answer.
And for those skeptical about this artificial intelligence, the system will only be as personal as you make it. You can scan in and build loyalty points which will lead to gifts, or stay anonymous with any swipe.
