Train station touch screen kiosks want to be your local food tour guide

Upping the stakes in the race to automate every human into unemployment, Japan's Gourmet Navigator has just introduced a series of restaurant finder touch screen kiosks at Tokyo's major train stations.

Outfitted with two LCD screens, the kiosks allow anyone to search for local food establishments ranked by cuisine type and popularity rankings. Future versions will include cameras to analyze trending patterns by age and gender. And, just in case anyone doubts the social media I.Q. of the initiative, all the kiosks are linked to Twitter with a constantly updated stream of new restaurant discoveries.
