Vending Machine Uses Facial Recognition To Make Recommendations Based On Stereotypes

December 19, 2011


This a conceptual vending machine from Japan that features a see-thru 65" HD display and facial recognition software so it can make recommendations based on basic demographics like age and sex. "BEEP BOOP, my systems indicate you are a fat white male -- Flamin' Hot Cheetos and a Mountain Dew?" HA, shows how much you know, Vendo-tron, I want Flamin' Hot Cheetos and a DOCTOR P-P. *trying to jam arm up shoot* Don't get me wrong, new technology is cool and all, but this is overkill. If you can't see everything a vending machine has to offer in less than five seconds you're either blind or looking the wrong way.

Hit the jump for a demo of the what do you mean you're out of Watermelon Sour Patch Kids ?!

Concept vending machine knows exactly what you want [dvice]

Thanks to Simon, who once shook a machine so hard after his Snickers didn't drop that the soda machine beside it got scared and started dropping free Coke Zeros.
