Equipment Innovation Intern
May 2012 — August 2012
At PepsiCo, I was responsible for prototyping solutions for innovations in vending machine technology. I collaborated with another software development intern to help come up with some new concepts for Pepsi's new Interactive/Social vending project. I worked with many of the leading technologies included in the second generation of the Interactive Vending machine's design, including a large, touch-enabled screen and a Microsoft Kinect. At the conclusion of the internship, my teammate and I performed a well-received presentation of our prototypes, case models and diagrams to the Pepsi Vending community as well as the executive team. We explained the concepts, benefits and detractions of each design and offered recommendations and conclusions for the machine's design.
