New Pepsi Vending Machine Lets You "Text" a Soda to Friends, Strangers

Categories: Rants

Texting and tweeting are everywhere. You can text vote on your favorite show, tweet a celebrity...  heck, you can even get fired via text like Charlie Sheen did from Two and a Half Men. But you could never send a friend an icy-cold beverage -- until now.

Pepsi's new social vending machine lets you perform a "random act of refreshment".

​PepsiCo recently announced its new, interactive, social vending machine. The machine, which has a touch-screen LCD display, will allow you to get nutritional information on Pepsi products, buy a soda, or send a Pepsi (complete with personalized video message that you can record on the spot) to a friend.

Your friend receives a text or email with a special code along with your message, redeemable for a Pepsi at any of the special vending machines.

You can also perform a "Random Act of Refreshment," which allows you to buy a Pepsi at random for a stranger.

So far, the machine is a prototype, but we see long lines for these little monsters at college campuses, movie theaters, and malls. Watch the Pepsi Social Vending Machine in action, after the jump.
