Airport Technology: Interactive Information Touch-Screens at the Edinburgh Airport (Scotland)


Seven of these wall-mounted interactive displays were installed at the Edinburgh airport in ScotlandThis interactive kiosk doesn't look cutting edge, as has the look of a pleasant, familiar ATM. It looks easy-to-use, for both the adult and child. This is important for rushed travelers in airports. by Scrimsign Microelectronics, LTD.

According to the company's website, options include a sunlight readable LDC, a thermal ticket or A4 printer, choice of cases, and a rugged keyboard.

I'm still looking for interactive displays in airports and other public spaces that are easy-to-use, yet also possess the "Wow!" factor.
