Automated Personalized Sports Drinks
Our company, Intelligent Beverage Technology, Inc., is developing a new type of advanced vending machine (a robot really) to make custom sports drinks for the patrons of health clubs. It is a space that is hungry for innovation. It's called the PUSH Machine™. (Performance Using Superior Health™)
Not Just Health Clubs and Gyms
It will have applications in a number of other venues such as corporate offices, airports, schools, colleges, and hospitals.
Made Your Way
The PUSH Machine invites consumers to design their own optimal sports drink, freshly concocted and delivered on demand. While the PUSH Machine is preparing and serving the consumer’s custom beverage, it may present them with targeted, paid advertisements (which they will have agreed to watch) on the large touch screen. These targeted ads will be combined with messages about health or the quality of the ingredients in their drink. The large, top-to-bottom full face LCD screen will be used to regularly engage and interact with our customers while they are using the PUSH Machine.
Networked As Part Of The Internet Of Things (IoT)
PUSH Machines are connected to the Internet by secure wi-fi and report on their daily use, revenue, number of users, level of consumables, and any maintenance or operational issues, as well as receive regular updates to the operating software. Paid, targeted advertising can be sent to each machine over the Internet to be displayed to consumers on the LCD touch screen. Consumers will be able to respond and express interest in certain display ads, creating valuable sales leads.
A Demand For Personalized Service
We have gotten feedback from patrons of gyms, health club owners, and regional vending machine operators on the desirability of our machine and the products it will deliver. (They are warning us we will need to manage the lines of people waiting their turn to use them! We can solve this a number of ways, including allowing pre-ordering on the phone app and installing two or three more machines at high-volume locations.)
