Manufactured by NEC, this new FeliCa
payment terminal (seen here at iEXPO 2008 in Tokyo) is designed for
amusement parks, arcades, or any place where a whimsical touch-screen
device might trick you into spending more money than you normally
would. And if handing control of your e-wallet to an android wasn’t bad
enough, in addition to selling tickets and dispensing data the device
boasts integrated facial recognition for identifying and profiling park
visitors — a feature to be used for determining your demographic
information and pointing you towards appropriate "amusement," such as a
restaurant for Ma or a wave pool for the kiddies. What could possibly
go "worng," you ask? Have you even seen Westworld?
