Kellogg's has recently announced the arrival of its "Bowl Bot" which is a breakfast cereal robot vending machine that would bring a variety of food options and toppings to choose from. This machine is said to elevate the breakfast experience so a person would not have to go through the same cereal every day, with the choices it brings.
Sometimes, the best breakfast cereal may not live up to the morning hype anymore, as it would be the same taste daily with the combination of cereal plus milk, then coffee or OJ (orange juice). Good thing is that Kellogg's has collaborated with Chowbotics, in a venture called "Kellogg's Away from Home," which is a bowl bot for a variety of fresh breakfast options.
Breakfast should be an option for all people, especially as it is considered as "the most important meal of the day" and eating low-sugar cereals can even help in weight loss if that is the concern for skipping it. The breakfast and cereal industry has been here for a long time now, and it has been mostly marketed to kids, but this is to change with the new bowl bot.
Kellogg's Bowl Bot Cereal Vending Machine Now in Universities
The first two iterations of the Kellogg's Bowl Bot with Chowbotics were sent to Florida State University (FSU), and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-M) respectively to give an option to students. This venture is to help students have an option for an easy, fresh, and healthy breakfast to kickstart the day, which shows it can cater to college students as much as those in grade school.
According to the University Housing of UW-M, the Kellogg's Bowl Bot was recently added to bring breakfast options to students, as it would help in promoting the first meal of the day. What is most interesting with the tech is that it gives everyone a variety of options to choose from, through its touchscreen vending machine for the ultimate bowl of preference.
Prices can range from $2.99 and may reach up to $6.50, depending on the add-ons and different sides which would come with it. The breakfast cereals included are that of Kellogg's featuring the Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, Cocoa Krispies, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Bear Naked Triple Berry Granola, and other cereals.
Would it Be for School Cafeterias and Dorms Only?
While these are the best places to keep a cereal vending machine in, they are not the only places to which the bot can be applied, especially as Chowbotics have been aiming to distribute its automated vending machines.
It can be used for different options including that of mall cafeterias or establishments, also in highly populated places like stadiums or gymnasiums, which can have other food or products in them. Vending Machines were considered to be a thing of the 80s or 90s, but it is slowly making its debut, especially as contact is preferred to be limited due to COVID-19.
