Minority Report meets Oscar Mayer?

“The “Meal Planning Solution,” part of Intel’s “Connected Store,” is a sort of kiosk you might find in an upscale suburban market, catering to families desperate to find something the kids will eat. [...] So, when he or she passes by the kiosk, the digital signage, equipped with a freaky sort of Anonymous Video Analytics technology, zooms in on his or her face and instantly determines gender and age group to guess what products might exert some allure.”

Sadly the video demos everything but the face recognition. Lame, Fast Company.

    Very good idea. Maybe the samples given out post midnight could be canned coffee and aspirin?
