Beverage manufacturer Dydo Drinco's newest vending machine can be used with your feet. There are no buttons in the display area. Consumers can choose their drink by stepping on a pedal.

The device also accepts payment by electronic money.

The machine is expected to reduce contacts and help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. After a trial period within the company, Dydo Drinco aims to install 100 units nationwide.
