Let's say that you're out at a bar, and you meet an attractive girl. You want to talk to her, but you are completely devoid of all redeeming qualities and are literally incapable of striking up a conversation with anyone, let alone someone you hope to have sex with. Before now, you'd probably have to run to the bathroom and consult your Tucker Max paperback for potential date rape tactics, but not anymore. No, now there is an AMP iPhone app that will do all of the dirty work of "manipulatingdegrading figuring women out" for you.
There's a new brand of supermodel in town, and, good news for the fashion industry, hunger-fuelled temper tantrums aren't part of her coding. It's the HRP-4C fembot, who made her entrance down the catwalk at Tokyo Fashion Week last month.
I am not sure if the media-savvy among you have already heard of this phenomenon, but apparently the newest trend in super-creepy-and-invasive advertising is ads that watch you watch them. This new technology, made by a company called Quividi, uses face-tracking technology (and yes, I guess that is a thing) to determine the age, race, and gender of the person viewing the ad. Then, the ad may change based on who is watching. WTF?
