    Beauty store uses your face to determine what language you speak

    Creativity-Online The Asian beauty market is known for its innovation, but the latest technology is taking things next level.  Popular Japanese makeup retailer, Ainz & Tulpe is the largest in the country and has long been a popular destination for shoppers both locally and abroad. Over the last few years there has been growing frustration over the inability to communicate with customers as more and more non Japanese-speaking shoppers make a special trip to Tokyo to visit the store. According to a video published by Creativity-Online, only 3 per cent of Japanese people are able to speak a foreign language, which makes it difficult for staff to cater to the growing number of foreign shoppers.
