EyeSee Mannequins are watching while you shop

I know the EyeSee mannequins aren’t as scary as the Autons from Doctor Who but I don’t like the idea of being watched. I already hate salesladies following me whenever I get inside a shop and now this. I guess from the view of the shop owner, it’s a great idea. I agree but just don’t inform the customers your “eyes” are on them.

The EyeSee mannequin obviously has a camera installed in one eye. It works with a facial-recognition software that processes data to recognize the age, gender, and race based on what it sees. Of course, we’re thinking data won’t be accurate.

Stores under Benetton Group are already using the EyeSee Mannequins. I have no problem with that, just don’t make them move.

Come to think of it, the Autons could be real in the future. Yikes!
