Or at least, the next best thing while still being creepy and disturbingly invasive. According to this article in The Daily Mail, advertisers are building digital advertising posters that pay attention if a passer-by is staring at them. If they are, they immediately change what they're showing in order to keep a potential customer's eyes glued to the advertising.
The technology is so sophisticated that it could soon even be possible to link the posters to a store's profile of each individual and display goods that would appeal just to them.
I wonder how long before we become desensitized by even these kind of advertising techniques.
