DVD Robots Take Over Local Walgreens


From everything I’ve read redbox DVD rental kiosks are kicking some serious recession butt with record profits.  McDonalds started the company back in ‘03, and still owns a good piece of it. Coinstar (think big green coin eating machine) recently purchased nearly 50% of the company last year for 20 mil. Apparently they make a good chunk of change off $1 new release DVD rentals. They brand spanking new machine is tough to miss at my local Walgreens, where pedestrians had to move swiftly around it for fear of being eaten and resold for a dollar.

My question for you then is this, what can you vend?

Jewelry, specifically gold. I've never seen a jewelry vending machine though...
