Minority Report Style Billboards

In Japan they are testing personalized billboards similar to those seen in the movie Minority Report.

The new billboards, developed by Japanese electronic company NEC, scan the faces of passing shoppers, quickly determine their age and gender, and then display demographic-appropriate ads

Critics fear the technology as an invasion of privacy, but NEC say people will remain anonymous, their faces instantly deleted. The technology will get an American trial later this year.
