Safety has been a crucial factor to any combo vending machine, and modern vending units embody this principle in a variety of interesting ways. The cycling industry just gained a powerful piece of technology thanks to an upcoming solar-powered bike helmet machine, which will promote both the physical safety of bikers as well as the overall well-being of the environment thanks to its utilization of solar energy.
According to Treehugger, the Helmet Hub vending machines will start popping up in Boston around July. For two bucks, riders can rent a helmet when they find themselves without one and return it whenever they are finished. The Helmet Hub team will regularly pick up and clean out the products, ensuring that every product rented out from the machine is fresh before use. The goal of the solar-powered unit? To ensure that riders have no excuse at all for biking around town without proper protection.
It’s refreshing and exciting to hear about such an innovative, safety-conscious product arriving to the industry, and we hope a variety of facilities buy vending machines of this nature. No one should hit the street without a helmet, and these products make safety more attainable than ever. Are you excited about this forward-thinking addition to the world of cycling?
