Computer Memory Vending Machine

Since technology is becoming increasingly commoditized I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to see computer memory vending machine.

Kingston, in conjunction with MyMemory, has unveiled the first mainstream computer memory vending machine. It is also located in about the most logical place for such a device: an airport.

Ann Keefe, Director of Sales UK & Ireland at Kingston Technology, was understandably chipper about the whole thing: “Our consumers are telling us they want greater storage capacity for their mobile phones, digital cameras and USB drives to store music, images, games, videos and personal data,” she said.

They want instant access to SD cards and USB drives as they need them 24/7, so vending machines in public spaces were the most obvious solution.

A memory selector will be integrated into all vending machines to give customers the confidence they are purchasing the correct memory card for their device.
