Nokia’s vending machine uses Foursquare-enabled technology encourages passerbys to check-in and receive a free gift in return.
Nokia’s vending machine, designed by 1000heads, makes its debut at the Skypark in Glasgow for the city’s Social Media Week. Dubbed the Nokia ‘gift machine,’ the Foursquare-enabled technology encourages passerbys to check-in with the #NokiaConnects hashtag, share on Twitter, and receive a free gift in return. Users are allowed one check-in per day and will get prizes varying from candy to Nokia accessories and smartphones. According to Nokia’s press release, this activity, alongside other work around the world, builds on Nokia + 1000heads’ ‘random acts of kindness’ activity from February earlier this year. Check out a demo video of this innovative vending machine below.
