Coca-Cola vending machine cools, power-free
Coca Cola have partnered with Fuji Electric Retail Systems and brought forth the A011 peak-shift vending machine. This amazing contraption can cool stuff for as long as 16 hours a day. These intelligent machines are programmed to shift their use of power for cooling, away from day time, to night time hours when power capacity is high. The surplus power at night is used to do the major cooling. Being in a perfect vacuum, the contents of the machine are kept cool, insulated from external temperatures. The machine will go into testing from July 2nd at two of Japan’s scorching regions. This is a part of the Apollo ultra-energy saving machine initiative.
