Think like fashion retailer Uniqlo who recently set up a Human Vending Machine for their HEATTECH apparel line in Times Square, New York. Prior to getting their free stuff people went through a ’scanning station’ manned with a Uniqlo associate with a hand held thermal camera. Each person’s heat image showed up on an adjacent screen and identified their core body temperature.
After that, visitors proceeded to to the vending booth where either a male or female dispenser were giving away the HEATTECH gear. The reasonably priced line claims to offer warmth from a very thin material. Shirts cost just over $10.
