this vending machine will judge you
Although behavioral targeting can be creepy, at least it's helpful. I mean, if you have to see ads, then why not have them be things you actually give a crap about?
But targeting ads based on stereotyping what you look like? Hmm, not so sure. What exactly would a bright red haired, tattoo having, 30 something like me be interested in learning about anyway? Pretty sure they couldn't guess.
But this new vending machine concept does just that. It has a camera that scans and analyzes you, then serves you ads for the goods inside that you might be interested in purchasing... all based on how you look.
