The time I built a vending machine

StartupHotel wanted to solve an important pain point for entrepreneurs: having to pay high costs to have a point of sale for their products. I helped design, fabricate, and program a low-fidelity prototype of a wooden vending machine that would provide a low-cost, highly adaptable space for entrepreneurs to get their products out there. This was developed using an iterative process that involved key stakeholders such as shop owners that would be hosting these hotels, users that would be buying from these hotels, and entrepreneurs that would be selling stuff out of the hotels.
