We've all had those vacations where we remember to bring the luxury items such as toothpaste and aftershave, but forgot the essentials like SD cards and USB sticks. Fear no more. Gatwick airport will be the first to unveil a new vending machine that exclusively sells various kinds of flash memory.
SD cards, Compact Flash cards, and USB flash drives will be the immediate offerings, with different flash cards expected some time in the future. The vending machines will head to airports and ground transportation stations throughout the UK.Sales director Ann Keefe from Kingston, a big company in the flash memory market, applauded the new machine by saying that consumers "want instant access to SD cards and USB drives as they need them 24/7, so vending machines in public spaces was the most obvious solution."
When will the day come when we don't even need stores anymore? Just do all your shopping from vending machines, like this Sony one and this iPod dispenser.
