For the Weekend: The Share Happy Ice Cream machine

Newsfeed 846 via

Here’s an interesting development for vending machines, particularly of the ice cream variety. I know it isn’t really arcade related but it’s sort of coin-op related and who knows if such technology could have a gaming application in the future. The Share Happy Ice Cream machine is an interactive vending device that uses cameras and face recognition technology to tell what emotion is on a person’s face when they approach the machine. If you can give it a big enough smile, you get a free ice cream snack.You can also have your smile shared on Facebook, thus giving such machines a new social networking element.
