They plan on showing different ads to different demographics? That wouldn't fly in the US because it'd be considered racist.

Well according to your assumption, the targeted ads displayed on many websites would be considered rascist, which they are not. Facebook is a big one, as based on age, gender, likes, dislikes, and other information, targeted specific ads are displayed on the right hand portion of the home page. It is not rascist to target consumer ads based on race, gender, or age.

"New Billboards in Tokyo Know Who You Are"

 Me: Wow, that sounds interesting!

 

First line of this garbage article:  Okay, they don't know exactly who you are...

 What the hell? You have to resort to these sad tactics? "Godzilla attacks Tokyo!" "Ok, so Godzilla didn't do that at all..."

 

Didn't bother to read this. Waste of time. Fire this writer

 It should prove to be interesting where this type of biometric technology eventually take us as a society. Law enforcement, corporate security, community infrastructures, and yes...advertisement firms are just a few of the many groups that can expect to achieve gains in this field of research. Ready or not, it is most definitely on its way into our lives.

this actually might be pretty cool, but i would then wonder about all of the male enhancement ads males would get as they glance at the screen.

i wish it could eventually take one step further and determine personality - then as some gloomy person strolls past it could read on the screen "Who's Awesome? You're Awesome!" or "Please refrain from discharging your wepons inside of the mall today. Thank you for your cooperation."

But wasn't there a mall or something that greets people in different languages based on nationality as they entered through the doors?

What would it advertise if someone were to walk past wearing a hockey mask and carrying a chainsaw?

Heh heh...

I wonder what will happen the first time a teen female is identified and an ad for training bras and feminine napkins is displayed.
