Vending machines have always been as a good friend to some people. Whether at work, in train station platforms or just passing by one in the most unexpected places, they are a sight for sore eyes when in need of a drink or just something to eat.

While time passes by, improvements are likely to be made. It seems that the old vending machine is next in line will be upgraded, at least in the United States. The news reports say that vending machines will not only be upgraded, but their product offerings will diversify. This means that instead of selling cheap candy and soda, customers should expect to buy everything from beauty products to electronics or even higher quality food from these new and improved vending machines.

A good example of such a high-tech machine comes from Denis Koci, having to roll out his Burritobox vending machines via his Box Brands companies. The vending machines are said to offer hand-rolled burritos which can be customized with sour cream, guacamole and other options. The company is also said to be interested in rolling out Pizzaboxes and other niche food vending machines, having them placed in shopping malls, near parks, or other locations where people are likely to buy something to eat.

From a techy point of view, some machines are said to also include Wi-Fi, touchscreens and even accept a variety of payments spanning from cash, credit cards and all the way to bitcoins. Some companies are said to even show some interest into releasing models with built-in webcams, allowing customers to take a picture and share it on their social media websites.
