Pay with Your Face at CaliBurger’s Pasadena Location

Over the last decade or so, foodie culture, globalization and fad dieting have combined to make eating out on the town an increasingly complicated endeavor. With the ability to add bacon or some other gourmet topping to virtually every kind of entree and/or sidestep a food allergy in the process, customizing your order at a fast-casual or QSR counter has never been so involved. CaliBurger, the West Coast provider of SoCal-style burgers and seasoned fries aimed at usurping the established In-N-Out Burger Empire, has tailored its future restaurant model around this developing reality and is making its mark first in terms of ordering technology. The restaurant chain’s new point-of-sale (POS) system is called the “FACE” AI Kiosk, and it has the ability to function as a friendly cashier while also suggesting additions and customizations from the menu based on facial recognition and your order history.

Upon their first visit, diners are prompted to attach their face to their account using NEC’s NeoFace biometric software. This not only allows one to automatically and securely pull up past orders with a simple scan of the mug, but it also lets you earn points (or Calicoins) towards free food down the road. The implementation of FACE also presumably cuts down on the number of potential human errors that cashiers can make when manually punching in a customer’s burger specifications. CaliBurger customers still have to use their credit card for the time being, but the company hopes to replace this with face-only payment later this year.

FACE is being test-driven at CaliBurger’s Pasadena location, but widespread adoption and expansion plans are only a matter of time assuming customers respond well to the quick and personalized approach. Check out the video below for a demonstration. The kiosk commercial’s director, Ashley Avis of Winterstone Pictures, took a page out of Rob Reiner’s book and had several actors break the fourth wall to talk about the real-life complications and stress of ordering at mealtime and how the POS kiosk streamlines the process as they scrunch into a furnished sofa and echo the domestic banter of lovable couples from When Harry Met Sally.

The French indie Rockers Group Phoenix started its’ world Tour, Ti Amo, in North America in May this year, before rocking the festival season here in Europe, then hitting the Asian continent and returning for their shows in London and Paris this month of September.

Once the whole of the creative design in place, Live Nation France, renowned organizer of prestigious concerts worldwide, approached PRG France with a very ambitious and challenging set design needing to dazzle spectators on a festival stage as well as an Arena stage, without changing the design. The guideline resumed itself in ‘modularity and time saving touring concepts’ for this Phoenix World Tour, for which PRG France pulled in the PRG Projects team, who specializes in the integration and development of unique staging and visualisation items.

Samsungs new Interactive Digital Flip Chart.

Samsung has releasing a Flip digital whiteboard (or "interactive digital flip chart" in Samsung speak) that can take on collaborative screens like the Google Jamboard. The 55-inch 4K display lets up to four people draw or add content at once, whether they're using their fingers or a dual-sided pen. And as the name suggests, you're not locked to a landscape view. You can flip the display vertical if you're writing a list or just don't have room for a wide screen, and it can be wall-mounted if it's going to be a permanent fixture.

You can connect devices either wirelessly or through USB, and share your screen if you want to see what's on someone's PC or phone. Want to see it in your office? Samsung hasn't disclosed pricing just yet, but the Flip will be available in both Europe and the US later in January. It's certainly not the first digital whiteboard and is arguably targeting a tough-to-crack market -- you have to really want to move past old-school markers. Samsung does have plenty of experience with connected devices and big screens, though, so it might have an edge.

65-inch rollable OLED TV.

We’ve seen the future of TV, and it rolls up like a newspaper. Now you can see it, too.

After two years of watching white-gloved LG Display engineers gingerly roll up prototype OLED panels, the company has finally created a functioning roll-up OLED TV. Of course the idea of being able to roll up your TV, throw it in your backpack and take it wherever you want is a fun, futuristic idea, but LG has found a more practical application for a rolling OLED television. It is both literally and figuratively the most flexible TV ever made.

This is how it works: flexible OLED panel is mounted to a motorized spindle, set in a rectangular box. You can’t see the mechanics, all you see is the TV going up and down. But why would you want to be able to move your TV up and down like this?

The appeal of hiding your TV is clear. When you don’t want to see your TV, you simply put it away. But the practical applications go further than that. You can adjust the TV so that it’s sized for different aspect ratios. Admittedly, different aspect ratios have a smaller size, but this is a very cool application for watching movies.

You may have noticed that, when watching movies, you see black bars on the top and the bottom of the screen. This is because many movies are filmed in a 2.39:1 (or 21:9) aspect ratio, and a convention 16:9 widescreen TV can’t fit the picture. To accommodate, the letterbox bars are added so you can see the full width of the film. By rolling this TV down to obscure part of the screen, the rolling OLED TV can be resized to 21:9, and the black bars are unneeded.

Roll it down a bit further, and you can have an extremely low-profile display which could be used for computing, informational display, or simply for showing pictures. Use your imagination. What would you place in a slick strip of roll-up OLED TV?

The TV won’t be seen commercially in 2018, but it could very well be LG’s flagship offering in 2019. This time next year, we could be talking about when you could buy your own roll-up OLED. Between now and then, LG TV needs to take this display and build it into a TV. It will need a box to handle HDMI connections, the processing chips, optical digital audio output jacks, and all the other features we’re used to seeing in a TV. It’s also possible LG’s TV division could somehow fold a soundbar into the final design. It’s also possible the TV could be hidden in a piece of furniture, so you wouldn’t have a TV in the room until you pressed a button on a remote control.

Meet SRD: Bodle's e-paper display technology based on PCM materials.

While E Ink is certainly the clear leader in the e-paper market, some companies are developing what they hope will become next-gen e-paper displays. Bodle, based in Oxford, UK, is developing a technology it calls SRD, based on research that started in Oxford University a few years ago.

SRD, or Solid-State Reflective Displays, creates color using light interference inside an ultra-thin film. The film contains a phase-change material, the same one used in writable CD-R discs. When this material is switched between its amorphous and crystalline phases, the color is changed.

SRD displays do not require any pigments, dyes or liquids - and can reportedly achieve bright and vivid colors. Bodle says that its technology, compared to other reflective and e-paper displays, offers a wider color gamut, high brightness, lower power and a fast response time - enough to show videos. SRD displays can also achieve very high resolutions, over 1,000 PPI.

Bodle's VP of business development, Dr. Richard Holliday, updates us that while the techonology is still in a "laboratory phase", the company has already proven that SRD displays can achieve vibrant colors and fast switching. The company is now busy building its first full-scale prototype. The production process itself is simple and uses only solid-state films, which the company hopes will enable it to be cost competitive with other displays.

Retail Statistics.

The new retail buzzword is real-time retailing. It’s all about giving the customer what she wants, how she wants it and as close to when she wants it as possible. There is no more multichannel or omnichannel – it’s just the retailer and the customer. This makes the retail industry the one to gain the most from digital signage, especially considering how fragmented the customer journey is.

LG shows off the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display

Just as 4K and HDR are finally going mainstream, the ambitious folks at LG Display have also been busy pushing its OLED technology to 8K. Come CES, the Korean manufacturer will be letting attendees get up close with its new 88-inch 8K OLED display (can we just call it the "Triple 8?"), which is both the largest and the highest-resolution OLED panel to date. But as far as specs go, that's all we have for now.

Previously, the largest OLED screen size was 77 inches, and it "only" came in 4K. While this combination is currently offered to consumers by the likes of LG Electronics, Sony and Panasonic, they all source their large OLED panels from LG Display.

With its main rival Samsung Display having long shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs, LG Display is now the sole large-size OLED display maker in the world. That said, with potential competition from other countries like Japan, LG Display has made huge investments to ensure that it continues to have the upper hand by ramping up OLED production capacity, as well as to make a bigger push into mobile OLED panels -- a market dominated by its Samsung counterpart. Part of this includes the construction of a new OLED plant outside of Korea for the first time -- in China's Guangzhou city, no less, and this was recently approved by the South Korean government.
