If you want to find the strangest vending machines in the world, you have to travel to Japan. In Japan, not only do the vending machines offer some strange items to purchase, but they are very high tech as well. Take this new Asahi soft drink machine here.
The machine will sell you a bunch of varieties of drinks to suit your tastes. It also has a cool tech feature integrated too. The machines have free WiFi and the WiFi signal is good for 50 meters around the machine. You can connect for free and you don’t even have to buy a drink.
The sessions are limited to 30 minutes at a time. Once that time expires, you can just log back on. The machines will hit 1,000 locations around Tokyo, Sendai, Chubu, Kinki, and Fukuoka in 2012. Within the next five years, there will be 10,000 of the machines around.
