Default We're watching you! Beijing installs facial recognition in toilets in a bid to combat tissue thieves

Toilet users must stand in front of tissue machine with cameras to get paper
The software recognises faces and refuses to roll out paper to recent users
Three public toilets at a busy tourist site in Beijing are using the technology

Toilet users are required to remove their hats and sunglasses to
have their faces recognised
Chance favors the prepared mind.

You laugh? Toilet paper theft is a big deal her in the US. If it came between toilet paper and beer, students will.... people will go for the beer.
Backing off on the tranqs..... petting puppies instead!
