Quick Update on Yo-Kai's New Machine at Haneda Airport
It's smaller and smarter.
Just a quick update here to a story we ran last week about Yo-Kai Express’ new machine that opened up at Haneda Airport in Japan.
When we originally ran the story, we noticed that the Yo-Kai at Haneda looked a little different from the company’s machines here in the U.S.
Our eyes weren’t deceving us, the machine is different. We reached out to Yo-Kai CEO Andy Lin for more details and he followed up with a note over the weekend. Basically the new machine is specially designed to meet Japanese regulation. The electrical and food contact material tests are all different in that country.
Additionally, there is a space limitation in Japan, so the machine is smaller (Looks like there is just one delivery bay instead of two). But, Lin said, the machine is smart and will automatically recognize products instead of needing a staffer to scan the product in.
