Wayne Hemingway singles out Coke's 'small world machines' as creative highlight of 2013

"Coca-Cola's Small World Machines uses simple, engaging technology to bridge a gap that anyone sensible knows needs bridging. It's an example of a brand expanding on a campaign ('Share a Coke') and making it politically and socially relevant."

Description

The enmity between India and Pakistan is broken down using a Coca-Cola vending machine that acts as a live communications portal between the two nations.

"Small World Machines" encouraged people to put their differences aside and complete a friendly task including waving, touching hands or drawing a peace sign in order to receive a Coke.
