For almost two decades, Fastcorp has been an industry leader in robotic retail and vending technology, offering a versatile and efficient platform to vend almost anything.
When Munroe Chirnomas founded Fastcorp in 1990, his vision was ahead of his time; to vend cigars.
The market didn’t command the contemporary user experience or the same quick access to consumer goods as of today, so most of the efforts are focused on reliability, efficiency and adding value to the market that needed it the most.
Fastcorp quickly became the world leader in frozen vending machine sales due to its product storage and delivery platform and machines can be found across USA and in over 50 different countries.
▋A futuristic 15-story showroom in Singapore dubbed the “world’s largest luxury car vending machine,” has opened and offering customers million-dollar supercars, including Ferraris, Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Porsches.
The facility is built by used car dealer, Autobahn Motors (ABM) simulates a “fish-bone” system capable of minimizing wind resistance. About 60 luxury cars are displayed in its illuminated showcase.
Customers on the ground floor can choose from a touchscreen display which car they like to view. The car will arrive within one to two minutes thanks to an advanced vehicle retrieval system.
The vending machine format aims to make efficient use of space in land-scarce Singapore as well as standing out from the competition, said ABM General Manager Gary Hong.
Developers have shown interest in using the company’s Automotive Inventory Management System for parking services.
▋Commuters demand water vending machines at all stations in Mumbai
With the temperature in Mumbai rising steadily, suburban commuters have demanded that the railways speed up installing water vending machines at suburban stations.
So far Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has installed 15 water vending machines on the stations to cater to suburban commuters.
The railways had announced installation of water vending machines on railway stations to allow commuters to purchase purified water at a much cheaper rate. Besides, environment friendly containers can be reused to refill water, thus reducing plastic waste.
▋SINGAPORE – Full-time national servicemen (NSFs) who need army supplies can turn to a vending machine which has been on trial since December last year.
The LifestyleMart Express vending machines are located at White Sands Shopping Mall.
They supply items like ziplock bags, batteries, powder, socks, insect repellant, singlets and shorts.
▋Anyone who’s ever fantasized about a personal fast-food vending machine to satisfy cravings at a moment’s notice need look no further — provided they’re really good at building stuff out of Legos. The folks at Astonishing Studios, a YouTube channel dedicated to constructing candy machines and food-makers out of Legos, constructed a machine made entirely of the tiny plastic blocks that churns out Burger King Whoppers, Cokes, and fries.
As Gizmodo notes, the machine is powered by a Lego Mindstorms module hidden in the back, and includes a motorized cash slot which will collect five $1 bills before depositing the food.
This isn’t the first time the mad scientists at Astonishing Studios have worked their LEGO magic on fast food. They’ve built a number of other machines fueled by greasy drive-thru fare, including a Chicken McNugget dispenser and a McDonald’s french fry machine.
▋14-YEAR-OLD ENTREPRENEUR RAISES $100K TO CREATE FIRST AID VENDING MACHINE
What started as an eighth-grade project could soon turn into a multi-million-dollar company thanks to a 14-year-old entrepreneur from Alabama and his diligent work ethic.
A decade of playing baseball as a first baseman and pitcher inspired Opelika High School freshman Taylor Rosenthal to create a first-aid vending machine.
“No one could find a Band-Aid when someone got hurt,” Rosenthal said.
When the Young Entrepreneurs Academy — a program designed as a class for students interested in learning how to start their own small businesses — asked his class to brainstorm ideas for a company, Rosenthal’s mother and father, who both work in the medical industry as an x-ray technician and sports medicine trainer, respectively, helped him develop his idea for the machine, which they called RecMed.
Rosenthal’s RecMed pitch went on to win first place in his class, which earned him assistance from startup incubator Roundhouse to develop the pitch for a regional competition in Boca Raton, Florida, where he won third place last year, Rosenthal said.
“Have you ever been to an amusement park, and your child falls to the ground and scrapes their knee?” Rosenthal asked in his original pitch. “Then, you had to walk all the way to the front of the park to get a Band-Aid?”
The vending machine allows consumers to purchase first-aid packages to treat ailments such as cuts, sun burns, bee stings and blisters that run from $5.99 to $15.95 or buy individual supplies like bandages, gauze pads and rubber gloves from $6 to $20.
In January, Rosenthal went on to win second place in the Techstars competition at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. He will be featured at TechCrunchDisrupt, a startup conference in New York, where he is the youngest person to ever be accepted to the event, he said.
Rosenthal’s mentor at Roundhouse, Kyle Sandler, said he is the youngest entrepreneur at the company, where the average member is in his or her 30s. Rosenthal spends all his free time at Roundhouse, where he even has an office, he said.
“We had to throw him out of Roundhouse on Christmas Eve because he wanted to keep working,” Sandler said, describing Rosenthal as “analytical, professional, determined” and an “exceptional young man.” Rosenthal is even a local celebrity, with the mayor of Opelika declaring Dec. 16 as “Taylor Rosenthal Day.”
The straight-A student says he sees a need for RecMed in any “high-traffic areas where children can get hurt,” such as amusement parks and sports stadiums. So far, Six Flags has ordered 100 machines, which cost $5,500 each, and several more “major” companies are interested, he said.
The first working prototype for RecMed has been created, and Rosenthal said he plans to begin deploying the vending machines in the fall. When asked what his favorite subject in school is, he replied, “That’s a hard one,” but ultimately decided on math.
Rosenthal plans on attending the University of Notre Dame and focusing on either medicine or business. But, he admitted to leaning toward business, following in the footsteps of his father, Terry, who has an MBA and runs a medical office in Opelika.
“It’s been amazing to watch him through this whole process,” Terry Rosenthal said. “A lot of people think maybe it was someone else’s idea. He came up with the idea, and he’s done the work. He’s been involved every step of the way.”
Rosenthal said although it’s “difficult” to balance school, baseball and running a business, all of the hard work is “worth it” in the end.
