Asahi: WIFI Vending Machines

Published on .

It's not unusual for a retailer to offer free Wi-Fi, but now, in Japan, even vending machines are offering Wi-Fi networks. Soft drink brand Asahi has unveiled vending machines that send out Wi-Fi signals to a 50m radius. You can log on for 30 minutes and check emails to your heart's content while you enjoy your drink (although, you don't even need to buy one to get access). Asahi plans to roll out 10,000 of the machines over the next five years.
