This machine is said to be a smart and practical solution to solve the problem of losing sales from vending machines in the past because many people are afraid to touch public devices. At the same time, when combined with the non-cash payment feature, customers are also somewhat assured of hygiene when using.

DyDo says the vending machine is currently at the concept stage and is being tested. In the future, it is also possible to integrate more features in this vending machine such as taking pre-orders or sterilizing products with a UV lamp in the bottom tray before the product reaches the customer.
