U*tique Makeup Vending Machine

While browsing one of my fav sites, I came across this piece on an automated makeup vending machine. Whoa, right ? This is seriously cool and I think I want one in my house.

As of now there is only one in operation at Studio Fred Segal in LA, but more are apparently on their way to more locales.

From U*tique:
" Brand partners include industry icons such as: Lancome, ZIRH, Bliss, C.O. Bigelow, Lancaster, BURNCandles, Chantecaille, and rising stars such as: Hourglass Cosmetics, Vosges Haut Chocolat, EBoost Energy Supplements, David Kirsch Wellness, Lipstick Queen, ZELENS and Ketty Sean, a couture Parisian knit doll designer debuting in the US with U*tique. The U*tique team will frequently update the product selection to stay on the cutting edge.

“I wanted to help simplify the shopping experience for customers. Our store is like an interactive
gallery, each item is hand selected and celebrated,” Segal( founder) said. “Consumers can experience that wonderful kid-in-candy-store feeling -- their eye is delighted, their desires are met, the only difficultpart is choosing which treat to buy.”

Racked also mentions the machine will be able to dispense samples and show product videos as well.

Let the fun begin. Can I franchise this?
