Hey everyone. Sorry you havenâ€™t heard from me in awhile. I have been real busy working on other projects (what? You thought I just spent my entire day at the Redbox? :))â€¦
Anyway, I ran into a real interesting article today that mentions our beloved Redbox dvd rental kiosk, and that talks a bit about other similar technologies.
You can read the article here:
These kiosks are doing a lot of things now – even selling iPods. While that is cool, I donâ€™t know if it is what we will find in kiosks in the future.
What I see coming soon is the ability to have any move we want to watch burned to DVD on the fly, then â€œself-destructingâ€ after 48 hours or so. That way, we wonâ€™t even need to return it.
Wouldnâ€™t it be cool to request your movie online, and then go down to your local Redbox and pick it up within 20 mins or so? Would you pay $2-3 per movie if you could rent whatever you want, when you want it?
Also, what other technologies do you think are on the horizon?
I would love to hear from you all. Let me know what you think.
