    I was amused and intrigued to read about a Japanese drink-vending machine (see photo) that identifies your age and sex so it can make appropriate recommendations.

    Here it is making a recommendation after it scanned the person standing in front of it:

    I wonder if it guesses your age by your height.

    ^ It does make you wonder what algorithm they use.

    My plans to test the machine have been delayed. :(
