Brain Game. 20.05.10

May 20, 2010

the brain game


This week’s question:

“What would you put in a vending machine?” 


Lauren Engel, 16,  Island School

I would use the vending machine for charitable purposes.  Donors could  simply put in the money  they want to donate and out pops a flag, sticker or toy that charities offer  as presents for  donors. This would eliminate the need for volunteers to go onto the streets  to ask people for money, so they  would have time to do other charity work.

Ruby Leung Yu-yan, 13, Maryknoll Convent School

I would put packets of tissue paper in  vending machines. Lots of people don’t bring tissues when they go out, but what if you suddenly have a nosebleed? Or if you  go to a washroom with no tissues in it? The tissue vending machines would be perfect for these situations. There could be different kinds of tissue paper from different companies and in different scents  to choose from. It would be useful anywhere – schools, MTR stations, malls and so forth.

Cathy Chan Chi-man, 16, CCC Kei Chi Secondary School

I would like to put packed fresh fruit in them. I love all  kinds of fruit. But I don’t like going to the supermarket or market to pick some up. If  vending machines could contain packed  fruit, it would make eating fruit more convenient. To change our eating habits or lifestyle, we need to begin with one small step.  Putting fresh fruit in  vending machines would  make it convenient  for fruit lovers and encourage healthy eating.

Elaine Yu, 15, International Christian Quality Music Secondary School

I’d include extraordinary products called the ‘Energy Pouch’ – invented by me. Inside the pouch you would find  various items, depending on which ‘Energy Pouch’  you choose. The ‘After-sport Energy Pouch’ would contain a bottle of water, a towel, a bar of chocolate and so forth. And the ‘Psyche Energy Pouch’ would contain some  heart-warming phrases and  a soothing music box. When  you are feeling depressed,  just buy this ‘Energy Pouch’ from the vending machine.

Melody Cheung Wing-kei, 15, St Paul’s Secondary School

I would put clinical masks in  vending machines. You may find this strange, but  the demand  for masks is increasing in Hong Kong. The air pollution and effect of mainland sandstorms have been  getting worse in recent years, but it is quite difficult to buy just a single  mask. Pedestrians  have to use their hands or tissue paper to cover their nose and mouth. With  ‘mask vending machines’, people would  easily be able to get one  to prevent inhaling air pollutants and dust. I would put different colours, patterns and sizes of clinical masks in the machines to suit different people’s preferences.

Karen Lee Ka-ki, 14, Carmel Secondary School

I would put umbrellas in them. We get caught in sudden squalls we do not expect. It’s  embarrassing and troublesome to find a place to wait for the rain to stop. And if we’ve forgotten an umbrella, we get soaked. Vending machines could be installed anywhere, such as MTR stations and large shopping malls. It would be convenient for us on rainy days. Besides, there would be different designs we could choose from.

The participants answers are published every Thursdays in Young Post.

Votes close on Monday at noon.
