The Bookstore of the Future?

I ran across this intriguing video, depicting what may be the bookstore of the future, in a blog post written by someone who feared bookstores would disappear as iPads and other devices supplanted the printed book. (The video and subtitles get cut off on the right, but it's pretty clear what's going on. However, if you'd like to see the full-screen version, just click on the link to the post.)

Interesting concept, isn't it? (And did anyone else notice the brief Harlan Coben product placements? Perhaps he was a silent partner on this project. :)) What's even more interesting is that the video shows bookstores and authors (as well as editors and reviewers) surviving, but mentions nothing about publishers. Hmm ...
