We have seen a lot of different uses for Kinect and more and more useful things have slowly come around (e.g. this mobile armchair )
Now there is another way of using Kinect – this time to track your customers in a retail environment. It’s called Shopper Tracker.
The sensor sits on top of the shelf and tracks the shopping behavior of the customers underneath. It then creates a heat map of the shelf so you can tell what your best selling items are. As far as I can tell it is not commercially available yet and no price has been announced, but that might change soon.
