The Facebook Camera That Can Recognise You Every Time You Walk Into A Shop

  • Could be used by shops to offer discounts to customers
  • System already being trialled in Nashville shops and bars
  • Users must sign up to take part and 'teach' system what they look like 
Shoppers could soon be automatically recognised when they walk into a shop using a controversial new camera.
Called Facedeals, the camera uses photos uploaded to Facebook to recognise people as they walk in.
Shoppers who agree to use the system, which has not been developed with Facebook, will be offered special deals.

It's a human. It's called a greeter at walmarts stores.

You mean they are now using "deals" to get people to put their photographs and biometrics into the "system"? These people would have told the Jews there were discounts on the best traincar slots. We won't have to be marched or rounded up --- but merely told the Kardashians like it or there is a midnight madness event at the local prison yard. Discounts!! Tell them which of your neighbors has a gun and get a 2 for 1 coupon!!
