Automate CDs and DVD retrieval

Status: Acknowledged

Save space in the store, make it easy for customers or employees to find a CD or DVD, AND make it fun in the process.  Red Box already has the basic functionality down, lets put a Best Buy spin on it and make it our own. If we make it fun enough, it might increase overall sales.


I'm picturing a touch screen interface in front of a telephone-booth style housing, the device would be stocked with DVDs and CDs. A user would then search for the DVD/CD he wants, and quickly, the device would check to see if it's housed internally. If it is in stock, it pops out vending machine style. Purchases would still happen at the front lanes.


As mentioned earlier, since everything is housed in the device, it'll clear up a lot of floor space. Also, since it's small, you could put it pretty much anywhere in the store. (Maybe in low traffic areas to drive traffic to those areas)

Interesting Idea. I'm not sure how we would fit our entire Media inventory of a store inside a machine, but I could see the value in not having to search through a store for the movie or album you want.


I'm not sure if this would be possible, but maybe it could be a machine that burns the requested media to a blank disc inside the machine upon request. This way the selection would not be limited to the store's physical inventory, but the customer would still get a physical copy of the requested title. Any other thoughts on this?
