Digital Signage Consortium[J] has set up digital signage devices at Akihabara station and on the streets around there, and is helping Japanese Red Cross to campaign blood donation by using the augmented reality technology.
The device enables face recognition, and it can count how many people have seen the screen. When you stop by in front of the device, it shows your appearance overlapped with the popular Vocaloid character Miku Hatsune‘s hair and the Red Cross nurse cap.
In Akihabara, there’s the best-known blood donation facility among geeks, which makes you feel as though you were in a starship.
