Last year we read about Drexel University's MacBook vending machine project and they've now followed that up with a new iPad vending machine for students. Drexel University in collaboration with the Free Library of Philadelphia is introducing an iPad vending machine. Located in the University's Dana and David Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, the kiosk will make a dozen iPads available to local residents and Drexel students.
Drexel's blog states that "Residents of Philadelphia's Mantua and Powelton Village neighborhoods bordering Drexel's campus will be able to use their Free Library of Philadelphia card to sign out an iPad and use it for a maximum of four hours. With a swipe of their Drexel ID, students will also be able to check out an iPad. Users won't have to worry about personal data being stored on the iPad as all information entered will be removed once the iPad is returned to its slot in the kiosk."
