Social experiment tests honesty on Las Vegas Strip

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jul 24, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Strip served as the lab for an interesting social equipment.

An unmanned kiosk is set up and stocked with drinks and snacks. People are welcome to help themselves, but they're asked to leave $1.

A beverage company called Honest Tea said the Strip is the perfect place to see what happened.

"This is Las Vegas. This is where everybody comes, whether you're a tourist, a local or traveling internationally. Everybody comes to the Strip, so we figured you could get a very nice diverse group of people," said Makoto Lokting with Honest Tea.

The results will be released in August.

Last year, the same location proved to be nearly 100 percent honest.
