7-Eleven stores in Japan trial holographic payment terminal

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.

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.

The holographic self-checkout kiosks will accept only cashless payment methods, including credit cards, e-money cards and QR codes.
