The first time I heard of Vengo was a few weeks ago, following an announcement from the DPAA (Digital Place-Based Advertising Association), and I was surprised to learn about a new type of an interactive kiosk.
Vengo’s wall-mounted vending machines occupy only two square feet of surface and they are just six inches deep. A touchscreen advertises the products that are inside and is also used to perform a credit card purchase. Vengos can dispense tech items such as headphones and chargers, as well as gum, mouthwash, cologne and other ‘convenience’ goods, and they can hold 7-10 days’ worth of product.
The compact size of the sleek high-tech machines allows Vengo to bring the ‘corner store’ to where you are – office buildings, bars, doctor’s offices and even taxi cabs.
