Smile-Detecting Ice Cream Vending Machine


Called Smile Happy, this ice cream vending machine by Unilever “literally takes consumer smiles as payment for its product.; well, a smile plus a photo marketing release form coupled with a biometric guess of the consumer’s age and gender.” Video after the break.

The vending machine measures the smile and, if it’s large enough, the customer gets a free ice cream treat. But first, that customer has to agree to allow her smiling photo to be used by Unilever on a Facebook brand page and potentially later on Twitter and YouTube.
