Vender is an IoT connected vending machine that started as an R&D project at Solstice before Adam joined the team. Less than a month before Solstice's first ever digital innovation summit — Solstice FWD — they wanted to expand Vender to the virtual world. Adam took the project on head first and developed the first ever virtual reality vending machine experience.
A user vends the drink of their choice by putting their hand up to one of the drink taps and waiting for the cup to be filled with liquid. Once filled, a service call is made to the Raspberry Pi hooked up to the vending machine, which then vends the user's drink. Drink choices are populated from a Hybris Platform which stores and manages all of Vender's data.
