Kraft is now taking advantage of creepy video analytics technology in order to predict what grocery shoppers might want to eat for dinner. The "Meal Planning Solution" kiosk will scan a shopper's face, determine his or her gender and age, and provide appropriate suggestions - which, obviously, will come from the Kraft family of products. I'm hoping that their recommendation for a 23-year-old female would be some sort of delicious mac and cheese, but I'm guessing it would probably be something boring like salad dressing. The kiosk can also send recipes and shopping lists to your smartphone, and it will dispense a free sample before you continue your shopping.
