By the end of 2020, all Coca-Cola Freestyle machines will be contactless, thanks to a tie-up between the drinks giant and Amazon.




Coca-Cola has partnered with Amazon Web Services to roll out tech that lets you pour drinks by tapping your phone.




Diners simply scan a QR code, and all the Freestyle soda fountain's usual functions appear on their phone screen.




Coca-Cola has already rolled out pilots of the tech to Wendy's, Firehouse Subs, and Five Guys — now, it's going nationwide.
