Trends Updates: A new kiosk selling food created by
Kraft answered the final question of who goes to the supermarket to buy
dinner, "What do I want to eat?” Called "Meal Planning Solution”,
the machine uses a facial scanner to see what you want to eat and make
suggestions for recipes and products for purchase. It is one of the
products in the Connected Store, Intel project which provides several
solutions to transform spaces in the stores even more interesting.
The creation is based on the idea that 70% of Americans do not know
what they want to buy in a supermarket to get there. The machine then
makes suggestions to people, recommending dishes that go beyond the 10
most consumed in the country, ranging from pizza, spaghetti, hamburgers
and chicken. Nevertheless, the suggestions of Kraft products always
involve, of course.
The sensor of the machine scans the person’s face and sorts according
to the group you find most appropriate: one can be a mother, for
example, searching for something to make dinner for the family. A young
boy could get a hint of pizza.
