Vending machines are super convenient, but they're also not very helpful when it comes to good choices.
So what do we do?
We invent a touchpad that will offer nutritional value and data for your selections, so you can make an educated choice!!
Not only is this good for consumers, but it'll help the industry as well:
Founder Paresh Patel says the device will help ease the burden on the vending industry, which the Food and Drug Administration estimates will have to put in 14 million hours annually to comply with new federal regulations requiring those who operate 20 or more machines to display the calorie count of each item.
All of this is good news, and we agree — it'll help the industry comply to the point where it's cost effective!
The thing is this: is the average vending machine user going to care at all, either way??
