Demonstrating the Newspaper Stand of the Future

Illustration for article titled Demonstrating the Newspaper Stand of the Future

We can't wait for the day when we'll read newspapers and magazines on our tablet computers, but what will happen to those darling newspaper stands and kiosks when that day comes? Based on this demo, they'll become better than ever.

This demo was given at SXSW and shows one way in which we might purchase our favorite publications in the future. Sure, over-the-air downloads would work just as well, but this could be a solution for those who choose Wi-Fi-only tablet computers or ebook readers. [eMedia Vitals via Business Insider]

I know not all e-readers include 3G wireless but by the time this could catch on; I'm sure all the e-readers will.
