This one should come as no surprise. One of the largest fast food chains in the world, McDonalds, has introduced a vending machine for their restaurant… though they have said that this is not a movement and was only a ‘stunt.’
McDonalds Vending Machine Provides Temporary Access
There is less and less need for human interaction with each passing year. About a month ago, the burger giant McDonalds introduced a vending machine from which people could pick up a “mini” or “maxi-sized” Big Mac after simply tweeting out on behalf of the company. Why is there no cost associated with the machine, as with most others? In this case, it’s because McDonalds has no intention, currently, of continuing this trend. The one instance was only to promote their new products.
Still, it’s worth noting that their locations already have a component of electronic ordering in the form of touch screen kiosks. Even so, people do have to receive their food from employees, so it isn’t a tech-only interaction. It’s also worth noting that there there are vending machines that have been introduced by restaurants and from which a person could obtain a meal without a single conversation involved.
What do you think? Would you prefer to get all of your food from vending machines, provided it was both fresh and affordable? Or are we moving in the wrong direction with so much automated ordering and technology-based interactions? Ideally, there should be a mix of both so that people can get whichever they prefer at any time of the day. Both have their benefits and drawbacks, after all, and variety is the spice of life.
