Attendees at this year’s SXSW festival got a chance to try out treats from a very unusual custom vending machine. A pair of machines that made 3D printed Oreos were in the brand’s Oreo Trending Vending Lounge doling out a dozen different flavors and colors of cookies.
People could pick from a list of trending fillings and the custom Oreo vending machine would go to work. The flavors and colors were determined by Twitter trends such as #NYC and the Ellen selfie. Anyone who wanted to join the conversation was able to chime in under the tag #eatthetweet. The cookies were a success, with many users tweeting their pleasure at the high-tech treats. Each cookie was created in under two minutes.
While machines that make cookies that change with social media trends are a fun novelty, there are many real-world applications for custom vending machines. These machines can be used for a wide range of applications from tracking office supply inventory to dispensing medical supplies. Looking for an easier way to manage a product or supplies?
