 Kiosk That Suggests You a Snack By Scanning Your Face Developed
A new kiosk developed by Kraft scans your face and according to your gender and age, recommends snack or dinner options.

Using anonymous video analytics (AVA), the kiosk categorizes the customer into gender and demographic groups in order to make suggestion, reports Discovery News.

So a hungry 16-year-old boy might be suggested a McDonald's burger while a family would be suggested to get a family pasta dinner.

The kiosk doesn't store any personal information about the person but only looks for known patterns of shape and light/dark to determine what's an eye, a nose, etc.

A demo "Meal Planning Solution" kiosk made its debut at the 2011 National Retail Federation show earlier this month.

And according to Kraft, its dinner options are healthy.
