Universals Pictures and Sony Entertainment have teamed up to bring Londoners their favorite movies, music, and games delivered via a vending machine called PoP.  Users will also be able to download media directly to their PMP or SD card of choice and watch a trailer before committing to their purchase.

I’ve seen a few DVD rental vending machines in supermarkets through out the US, be they’ve never risen to prominence.  Somehow I think the PoP machines will suffer the same fate, but then again if the majority of the media is downloadable then the titles can be endless and refreshed often.

Update: Stuff has some video of the PoP machine.  Looks like they’ve gone touchscreen and are using full sized jewel cases for Blu-rays.
