Another reason to love Japan

Internet Vending Machines!

It’s no secret that Japan is the country of vending machines… but this is new: Tokyo-based beverage company Asahi Soft Drinks took the wraps off a vending machine that not only offers drinks but also sends out Wi-Fi signals within a 50m radius.

The Wi-Fi will be available for free, is accessible with multiple devices, without registration, and for anyone to use (meaning users won’t have to buy any drinks to go online through the machine). It’s possible to use the web for about 30 minutes before the machine cuts you off (re-connecting is possible, however).

What a perfect compliment to Coffee in a Can!

Now you can serf the internet while drinking Wanda Wonderful Coffee.

The first is always tasty.

    That’s pretty cool and a good marketing ploy.

    Japan is just so cool and leading the way once again.

    That’s pretty great. I feel like I’m spoiled with Wi-Fi in Minneapolis. When I went to Chicago it was really hard to find free wi-fi.

      There was no free wi-fi in Japan – everyone appeared to have a private carrier. But in China, there was often free wi-fi – or at least the free with your drink type. Communists!

    I wish this had been in place when we visited!

      No doubt Asahi would have profited from our coffee in a can addiction.

    Japan just totally rocks!
    Japan used to be world renowned for it’s high quality products. Now it is popular for it’s techno advances. I love all the crazy machines they make. I hope they use a lot of solar or wind power though. It seems like all that high tech stuff would really pollute.
