What is the Swap-O-Matic?
The Swap-O-Matic is a unique vending machine that allows users to swap items rather than buy. Its intention is to offer an alternative in today’s disposable economy by encouraging communities to trade and reuse items in a fun and exciting way.
It taps into the thrill that comes with getting stuff and the convenience and instant gratification that a traditional vending machine, but it turns into a vehicle to promote a sustainable method of acquisition. Through the power of design and technology we’ve taken something as timeless yet simple as swapping and made it into an event that’s exciting, playful, inspiring, and memorable. The goal is for users to user the machine, and remember the experience and start to rethink our current consumption habits.
