J!NS eyeglasses vending machine at TGS
If staring at a computer screen is as bad for your eyes as they say, J!NS found just the right place to set up its latest vending machine.
The eyewear company plopped one of its new eyeglasses dispensers right in the middle of this year’s Tokyo Game Show. These aren’t just any eyeglasses; the J!NS PC models in the machines are specially designed to protect your eyes when looking at an electronic screen.
Several of the touchscreen vending machines opened in Japan this summer, including a brand new one at Kansai International Airport. The company is planning to set up 50 more of the so-called J!NS Self Shops around the country. Different styles and colors are priced at ¥3,990 and ¥5,990, payable by credit card.
The company’s slogan is “Glasses that can see the future.” Are they seeing the future of retail?
