Motorola Testing Phone Vending Machines

Like the iPod and Sony vending machines before it, Motorola's vending machine will sell accessories and even phones, dispensing them with the convenience zero human interaction.

The machines will be called INSTANTMOTO—spelling it in ALL CAPS is required before use—and is already set up in SFO and Chicago's downtown Macy's store. To purchase stuff, you use the touch screen and your debit or credit card. And to prevent the thing snagging and you getting ripped off, your card is only charged when the sensors detect you removing it from the bin. Nifty.


The video is of Crecente trying out the Sony version, poking around as if English were his fourth language.
