A KFC In China Can Guess Your Order By Scanning Your Face


Indecision can sometimes be the bane of fast food. It would be so much easier if robots could pick and choose what we wanted to eat before we wasted any more time in contemplation.

Mashable reports that a partnership between Kentucky Fried Chicken and Chinese search engine company Baidu is creating a “smart restaurant” concept in Beijing. Thus putting the whole robots choosing what you eat thing in a whole new light.

Beijing’s new restaurant features kiosks that will scan a customer’s face, making menu suggestions based on their age, gender, and mood they’re currently in. The tech will store facial scans and make future suggestions for repeat customers based on things they’ve ordered in the past.

The point, according to TechCrunch, is to guess what the customer wants before they even have to ask. So far, one concept is slated to open in the near future, with no official release date as of yet.

Are you ready for restaurants to eventually know your every food preference?
