Here's another job that automation will take over: the magazine news stand. The idea is brilliant: rather than waste resources and work out logistics to deliver magazines, create a physical issue on demand whenever a customer wants one. Called Meganews Magazines, the fully-automated kiosk lets you select the magazine, browse it and, if you want it, pay for it and have you pick up a print-on-demand hardcopy. Brilliant.

Use the touch-screen to select a magazine of your choice, pay with your credit card, and within two minutes a high fidelity issue can be picked up at the end of the newsstand. The printing course of your magazine can be followed on a monitor.
