PFU Systems’ latest prototype dual display kiosk is pretty special, considering it relies on face recognition technology that is capable of delivering a more personalized advertising experience. The top screen on the kiosk will show off a rather dorky looking animated face courtesy of Big Towns, a specialist in computer graphics, whereas the bottom touchscreen display functions as an interface instead for you to navigate through. Omron’s software that is loaded within is capable of determining one’s gender (no idea how it does that – what happens when one looks androgynous?) while giving an approximate age reading (women, stay alert!). With such details in hand, it will then pull out the more appropriate advertisements for your viewing pleasure.
