New technology allows you to purchase meals with a smile
Mother Teresa once said “We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do,” well a smile in a KFC in China can get you a free meal.
Alipay recently launched a new technology that allows you to pay by merely flashing a smile. The pay-by-smile system is only implemented in a single KFC in Hangzhou and uses facial scanning with a 3D camera and a “live-ness detection algorithm” to check the identity of the person, who must also enter their mobile phone number to help guard against fraud.
The KFC shop that’s offering the facial payment system is a healthier chain called K Pro which sells salads, juices and paninis.
