Coca-Cola is continuing it’s ‘Open Happiness’ campaign by setting up a vending machine in Singapore which gives cans of coke in return for a hug. It’s another of the many ‘Happiness Machines’ we have seen deployed by the company around the world since 2009.
The machine uses sensors to detect when it’s being ‘hugged’ and instantly dispenses coke. It also allowed multiple people to hug it at the same time, but only detected it as one hug.
If you haven’t seen it already, I’d highly recommend you check out the video of when Coca-Cola launched a ‘Happiness Machine‘ in London, it’s brilliant.
Whoever the first person to test this out was is a very brave person for doing so in public.
