The same as in many other offices, every morning at Aimbulance starts with a cup of hot coffee. Often the check-in ritual precedes the process of drinking the first daily dose of caffeine. We decided to combine these two morning habits used in our office and transformed a common vending machine into a phygtal-coffee machine.
To realize this idea we programmed the vending machine to automatically check-in everyone who ordered coffee. The coffee could have been ordered via mobile or by visiting the coffee machine website.
