You may have heard that China has gone gaga over facial recognition technology. It appears in government areas — China now fingerprints and photographs all foreigners entering the country. And it appears in private locations — such as entering business buildings (hello, Alibaba).

But this latest one may take the cake.

In the Hangzhou train station bathroom, visitors need to stand in front of the camera for 3 seconds to get their face scanned in order to receive toilet paper.

I shit you not.

Cameras in bathrooms, not creepy a.f. Visit China, they said…

Glad I spent a lot of time in China in the ’90s…
