5. L’Oreal’s Automatic Makeup Distributor
This L’Oreal vending machine makeup distributor was being tested in the Bryant Park subway station late last year. Called the “L’Oréal Paris Intelligent Color Experience,” the machine asked you to stand still as it detected the colors in your outfit and then recommended products to match, which you could buy on the spot. The machine sold eye shadow, mascara, nail polish, lipstick and gloss in a wide variety of shades.
