pumps across the United States beginning early next month. These internet-connected pumps will feature a color screen which can be touched and used to find landmarks and such.
The device is being made by Gilbarco Veeder-Root Inc. These toys will be used to help tourists locate restaurants, hotels, landmarks, etc.
Drivers will also be able to print out directions to these locations right on their receipt printer. Ads will not be displayed along with maps but station owners will have the option of making deals to have coupons or other promotional material dispensed along with driving directions.
As per Google, the service became of interest to the company because it wanted to make its services available to consumers at times when it is most needed.By the way take look at the picture above, and that’s probably how the pumps will look when all said and done.
Way to go google!!!
