Tesco petrol stations to scan customers' faces

London (AFP) - Britain's biggest retailer Tesco is to install screens at its petrol stations that scan customers' faces so that advertising can be tailored to their age and gender.

The world's third biggest supermarket chain will install the hi-tech screens at the tills of its 450 British petrol stations, according to Amscreen, the digital advertising firm that developed the technology.

Amscreen chief executive Simon Sugar admitted that the devices were "like something out of 'Minority Report'", the 2002 sci-fi movie directed by Steven Spielberg.
