Now you can check-in to a location on Facebook through facial recognition scanning. The Redpepper ad agency claims to be beta testing a camera on the outside of a Nashville business that automatically checks patrons in to a location and offers them deals, after users have given the company access to their Facebook data, even though this technology has been developed independently of Facebook.

Thanks to Ben Dvorsky for today’s fodder.
