Advertising a la Minority Report

Do you remember the scene in Minority Report where Tom Cruise walks into a Gap and is greeted by a holographic female who recommends clothing to him based on facial recognition?

Lucky for us, YCD Multimedia shares the same feelings and is working to bring digital signs to our local malls.

Each sign will be able to scan a customer’s face and analyze it. After determining race, age, sex and ethnicity, the system will recommend purchases based on your bodily makeup. It’ll be interesting to see what it recommends for me. I’m assuming some t-shirts are in order….
