I know I am crazy to have this on the front page article but I couldn't resist! Japanese are crazy for their ideas and it's only getting better and better. Japanese vending machines have been known to dispense some of the craziest stuff ever and check this out – a vending machine that also gives you free WiFi for up to 50 meters?!
The new Asahi soft drink machine will sell you a bunch of varieties of drinks to suit your tastes. The machines has free WiFi and the WiFi signal is good for 50 meters around the machine. You can connect for free and you don’t even have to buy a drink.
The sessions are limited to 30 minutes at a time. Once that time expires, you can just log back on. The machines will hit 1,000 locations around Tokyo, Sendai, Chubu, Kinki, and Fukuoka in 2012. Within the next five years, there will be 10,000 of the machines around.
Is that cool or what?
