In Japan, vending machines can be found in every corner but free Wi-Fi is very rare. Enter Asahi‘s new vending machine. This new machine not only dispenses drinks but also offers free Wi-Fi, problem solved for those in Japan who want constant internet access.
The machines which sends out free Wi-Fi signals within 50 meters radius, are made by Tokyo-based Asahi Soft Drinks. It allows multiple devices to connect to the network for 30 minutes, users can even reconnect again.
According to reports, Asahi plans to roll out 10,000 vending machine with free Wi-Fi in Japan by 2017.
Another great idea from the Japanese! Hanging around beside a vending machine for 30 minutes might even tempt anyone to buy a drink during summer months in Japan.
