We know Google already applies similar technology. I clicked on the link you provided in the banner, which opened the Sun article to the smart billboard, and voila, ads appeared on the webpage that were obviously customized to MY ISP location and MY "perceived" interests, arising from a compilation of MY browsing habits archived over time.
Google helped design much of the system which is emerging. I personally have documents showing how Google is to be used as a information hub in routing the information between information capture technologies (RFID biometrics) and particular service providers. One could think of tracking cookies as a form of foundation on this end.
Check out Scroogle's homepage for archived articles about Google's cookies and other bad stuff they do.
Please check out the work and role of a person named "Hideo Saito" and any possible role he might have in this system.
I will do further digging on Saito but immediately I have come across some interesting information. For starters he has been heavily involved in holograghic imaging and virtual reality. He also has had a hand in different versions of facial recognition software as well as high speed imaging software, such as the type used to identify license plates of high speed vehicles. I will do some more digging in the morning and send what is relevant in a email.
As of now I am extremely tired after spending several hours in the ER with my brother, and have a early rise in front of me.
Thanks for the heads up on scroogle. I will have to check it out. Given that I have already spoken up quite a bit about Google and their intentions and have yet more to go, I have probably already made my bed here. I am interested to see if I get different results and so forth.
