This is a very cool interactive animation to show what helps to drive up sales of fruits and vegetables in a school cafeteria. Isn't it amazing what little changes can potentially lead to?
Yesterday I read in the Wall Street Journal about a new vending machine that dispenses fruits. It has two compartments, an upper one for bananas and a lower one for other fruits. They are set at two different temperatures to help the bananas ripen slowly. Also, they came up with a banana elevator to gradually descend the bananas rather than dropping them down to the dispenser, causing bruising. Since my thesis topic was on vending machines in junior highs, you can see how I would be excited over such a topic.
