Ads That Watch You

March 12, 2010

I’m a music producer with a passion for technology and I have to say that this blew me away.

Tom Cruise is being pitched by smart Ads in Minority Report

Remember the movie Minority Report? In that movie there’s a scene where Tom Crusie walks down a hall that has digital ads that recognize him, watch him and sell him different products according to his needs.  In five years 10% of all digital street ads will do just that, in fact Japan is already doing it and testing of the technology starts in the US this spring.  The ads are able to recognize your gender, age, body type, information about you that will trigger images of products or services you might want.
