Yahoo Japan plans facial recognizing, content personalizing billboards

Dang, tell me this doesn’t sound familiar?  Yahoo Japan and a Japanese billboard manufacturer are collaborating on electronic signage that photographs the faces of a passersby, analyses it using NEC’s facial analysis technology, and estimates his or her age. Once the demo is confirmed, the device spits out appropriate advertising content.”

Whoa.  It’s just like Minority Report.  I’m telling you.  People mock sci-fi, but imagination is an amazing ability.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Isn’t someone working on the same hands-in-the-air interface?  And you know they’ve been working on flying cars for a while.
