Vending machines in restrooms could soon have digital displays where customers can learn about the products before they make a purchase

Bathrooms at the movie theater could feature more interesting vending machines than they have to date. Powder Room Interactive Media, a technology company based in Melbourne, Australia, created a touchscreen vending machine where customers can learn about the brands and even sample a product before buying it.

The machine's software has audio and video functionalities that enable the customer to discuss an item with the machine or simply press “tap and go” to make a quick transaction. With the digital screen, advertisers can schedule the time of day they'd like to display their brand. The LCD screens vary from 32 to 40 to 50 inches.

Over 300 restrooms in Australian airports already have the digital vending machines installed, with Powder Room Media looking to expand to shopping malls in the near future.
