Fujitsu’s Robot Kiosk Has Funny Face, Recognizes Yours

PFU Limited, a subsidiary of Fujitsu, has developed a prototype dual display kiosk which uses face recognition to deliver a more personalized advertising experience, similar to their recent tests involving ENON.  It appears Fujitsu is actively looking to market in-store advertising systems, and is trying out different methods to see which one works best.  The kiosk’s top screen features a silly animated face created by Big Towns, a company specializing in computer graphics, while the bottom touch screen can be used as an interface.  Omron’s software can determine a person’s gender and estimates their age, which affects what product’s are advertised and how the digital character interacts with you.  If it can make you laugh, it scores your smile against others in its database.
