Caliburger launched a new point-of-sale system on Tuesday that lets customers order using facial recognition technology. The first time customers order using the in-store kiosks, they’ll be prompted to attach their face to their account using NeoFace biometric facial recognition software.
With this technology, you’ll be able to automatically bring up a past order next time with a simple face scan, and earn “Calicoins” toward free food down the track.
You still have to use your credit card for now, but the company hopes to replace this with face-only payment by 2018.
“Facial recognition is part of our broader strategy to enable the restaurant and retail industries to provide the same kinds of benefits and conveniences in the built world that customers experience with retailers like Amazon in the digital world,” said John Miller, chairman and CEO of Cali Group, in a press statement.
