More than five years ago vending machines that dispensed books were the talk of the town. Today, an updated version of the literature purveyor has arrived—a vending machine that can dispense eBooks. Customers simply insert money into the machine, which will then dispense a receipt with a QR code. The user can then scan the QR code with their ebook reader or smartphone, to redeem it. The vending machine is the brainchild of Japan-based company, Glory Ltd., and made its prototype debut at the recent Tokyo Ebook Fair.
