Happy Hour

The Arnold Ad agency in Boston have come up with a delightful way to brighten up their staffs day!

Introducing Arnie, a beer vending machine with a smart, touchscreen interface loaded with an “Alepedia” to give users more information to his customers. Staff have been provided with a fob loaded with credits to allow several free beers a month, which can also be topped up with their own credit should a party break out in the lunch room! The fobs recognise who is using the machine, allowing for a person experiance where Arnie talks them thorugh and explains how to get a cold one!

Of course, no innovation nowadays is free from social media, so Arnie is equiped with what else- his own twitter feed (@arniebeer) where he can tweet his thoughts – generally either begging for company when he hasn’t had many visitors or warning that a party is about to happen once he has sold a few beers that hour! Arnie also retweets mentions from staff to show they are happy. It is also possible for users to tweet directly from the machine to express their delight in popping the cap of nice cool beer!

Arnie was the product of an internal $100,000 initiative called “the Make project” where staff came up with their own ideas of how to improve productivity and happiness within the office. Launched earlier in the month, from the looks of Arnies twitter feed it appears staff seem happy, quite how productive they will be with a 24hour free bar in the office I don’t know!

Arnie currently dispensers 6 different varieties of beer, including his own “Arnold Pilsner” and their are plans to extend the range to include seasonal beer. picture from psfk.com
