Has anyone heard of any hardware-based subscription services where the product / project has to be returned after some time?

To put it in an example, imagine an AdaBox that you subscribe to, then you have to send everything in it back after a few weeks.

For more expensive hardware projects, it could be one way of letting people use the product for some time to try it. The subscription fee should be less than the cost of a kit of parts.

What are some risks that you see? (Apart from the obvious of not returning the project)

Curious as to people's thoughts on this!
