This interactive billboard for British Airways uses custom-built surveillance technology to detect planes flying overhead. Accordingly it changes the state of a child pointing at the plane. The billboards also display the plane’s flight number and route.
I really like the Leap Motion controller, a small device which can track your hands very accurately to use as a controller for Mac’s and Pc’s. Till now I mostly saw nice looking demo’s which didn’t go much further than demonstrating. That’s why I really got excited when I saw this video where a surgeon uses the Leap to scroll through CT Scan imagery. The surgeon is not longer required to touch a mouse or screen in order to look up information during a surgery, with some development this could be a fast and more hygienic alternative to a traditional mouse in the surgery room.
I just came back from a trip to Budapest, Hungary. When I arrived at the airport I immediately fell in love with the signing at Terminal 2. Back home I managed to find out who was the brain behind these beauties; Budapest-based designer Miklós Kiss. Really like the clean typography, fresh color combination and clear icons!
