Customers at six 7-Eleven stores in Japan can now make contactless payments using a holographic screen projected from the self-checkout terminal.
Developed by Toshiba, the Digi POS system creates the illusion of a touchscreen interface hanging in the air in front of a shopper.
The holographic displays are equipped with Neonode’s Touch Sensor Modules that make it possible to interact with the images projected by the vitrual touchscreens mid-air.
Customers scan the products in their cart and then select their preferred payment method and confirm the transaction on the floating screen without needing to touch the self-checkout kiosk directly.
Urban Forssell, CEO of Neonod, says: "Our technology is simplifying and enhancing the customer experience and making the interaction with the underlying device or system safer, more hygienic, and more convenient to use."
The holographic self-checkout kiosks will accept only cashless payment methods, including credit cards, e-money cards and QR codes.
