Vending machine as one kind of non-store business has been very popular in the developed countries for many years, and so has been Taiwan. Unfortunately, there areonly very few related researches that have been done for studying consumers how theyoperate a vending machine by an efficient and convenient way. The main goal of thisresearch is to explore how to apply the Augmented Reality on designing the displaypanel of the non-store vending machine. It means that it is to improve the convenience,efficiency and familiarity of the display panel. Augmented Reality is the extension ofVirtual Reality. It’s the instruction between virtual and reality. Following theimprovement of technology, the consideration of colony interaction usage is graduallyinstead of individual immersive effect. The method of display is not only showing onthe computer or Head-Mounted Display but also indicating the trend nowadays ofintegrating application of cell phone, PDA, projector andlor diversified interfaceoperation.In accordance with one of four kinds of the application type for Augmented Reality development till now, it＇s that Tangible Augmented Reality integrates Non-store Vending Machine display panel design. We discussed the research of Tangible Augmented Reality which possibility of interface and operation interaction development in the application of Non-store vending machine. In this research, we stood on tangible principle and rule of design to process the instruction of Tangible Augmented Reality, and adopted the theory of User Graphics Interface to process the design of Graphic vision and interface. This research is by the coustruction of Tangible Augmented Reality system to improve the interaction of operation model and procedure in vending machine and enhance the feedback and controe of the Man-Machine System in terms of perception、information、storage strategy and maniputution. The results of the research could be the reference of panel design for the vending machine supplier inthe future.
