One of the recent trends that people have started to notice is car vending Houston. Texas is a state where all kinds of crazy things happen, so it’s pretty natural that a service like this were to open up.
Essentially, the process just requires you to use your phone. You can scan the app against a screen that the vending machine has in front of it and all of your details are going to come up. After a few taps here and there you would be good to go! Your car of choice would descend and be slowly ejected from its pod and you would be provided the keys right then and there without having to speak to anyone at all.
If you have ever tried to rent a car you know that writing out all of your details is a tedious process that no one would want to go through time and time again. This is why this new technology is so exciting. Instead of having to write anything at all, you can just swipe your phone and all of the details will be noted down for you without you having to move a muscle!
This is also convenient because payment is made with the same swipe. If your phone is connected to your bank account, the app can just deduct the funds directly and thereby make it a lot easier for you to just get into the car and get going on your journey. Something that would have taken an hour to do can be done in seconds!
There is the question of the long term viability of this technology. Is it truly useful or is it just an interesting fad? Only time will tell, but we will see soon enough.
