You walk into a Wendy’s. You think you might be in the mood for a movie with your dinner. You see an e-Play machine in the corner. Using the 23-inch LCD touch screen you pick a movie from an inventory 800 titles strong. Within 30 seconds, you have a burned DVD copy of your flick (or you can just download it to your MP3 player).
That’s the idea behind e-Play’s test launch of its DVD-burning vending machines in 50 Columbus, Ohio stores by Thanksgiving with further rollouts in other areas by early 2007. The machines will appear in Wendy’s, White Castle and Meijer’s with more stores to follow.
