Following the success of its Twitter-activated vending machines, Dayton, Ohio-based Innovative Vending Solutions has launched an Instagram posts version. After guests post a photo with the event’s hashtag to the social network from their mobile device, the machine dispenses a free goodie. An LCD screen then displays the person’s photo and handle. The machines are available worldwide; pricing starts around $7,500.
