In the USA, vending machines began sell ammo

American supermarkets in the South are offering ammo directly from vending machines, using artificial intelligence to verify the age of customers.

This is reported by Gizmodo.

The company American Rounds, which is behind the initiative, has already installed such machines in six locations in Oklahoma and Alabama. These machines use artificial intelligence and facial recognition technologies to ensure that shoppers meet age restrictions.

Americans are known for their love of guns, and nearly half of the US population lives in households with a gun. The US is the country with the highest density of guns per capita, ahead of even Yemen. With that in mind, it's no surprise that you can now buy bullets as easily as a chocolate bar or a soda.

How do you buy ammo and what's the point of AI?

< p>However, the process of purchasing cartridges through these machines is more complicated than buying ordinary goods. According to federal law, buyers must be at least 18 years of age to buy ammunition for long guns and 21 years of age for short-barreled ammunition. American company Rounds has developed an age verification system that includes card scanning and facial recognition to ensure that the buyer meets the necessary age requirements.

«Our smart retail automated ammo dispensers have built-in artificial intelligence technology, card scanning capability and facial recognition software . Each part of the software works together to verify that the person using the machine matches the scanned identification. It's on the company's website

Are vending machines legit cartridges?

Despite this approach to testing, these machines are not universally accepted with enthusiasm. For example, a store in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, removed one such machine due to a "lack of sales" and doubts about the legality of such machines. The City Council has determined that vending machines are legal as long as they meet zoning requirements.
