This is truly great.
I was at the checkout at the Co-Op in Seven Dials in Brighton and noticed that the card reader was asking me a question. A question with a simple yes / no answer. The overhead of me answering was almost zero.
Just to be clear, this wasn’t part of the transaction process. I was paying by cash. It just sits there asking questions when it’s in idle mode.
A bloody brilliant way of using a bit of technology that’s already there to do something useful.
Has anyone seen this in action elsewhere?
BTW, there were cardboard boxes on the floor that shouldn’t have been there…
