A few implementations in consumer facing situations with some unique properties observed in recent news:
- Royal Bank debuted their first branch with the new branch concept using solutions like Microsoft Surface – for more details on the solution elements and some video check out my prior post.
- Couche Tard is piloting a bluetooth mobile coupon solution tied to digital signage solutions for Red Bull. Here’s hoping it doesn’t become mobile spam!
- Starbucks Canada has placed interactive screens in the front window of one site in both Toronto and Vancouver as part of their Tazo Loose Leaf Tea campaign. Visit them prior to February 26 to try them out.
- London Luton Airport in the UK debuted ‘holographic’ hosts to assist airport travellers in navigating the security process. They are rear-projections of real people onto full size human shaped screens.
- Walgreens is now providing the capability for customers to renew their prescriptions via their mobile device by taking an image of the barcode on the bottle.
- Kraft has a new kiosk that they showed off at NRF’s big show in New York last month that recommends recipes based on users’ appearance. There’s something of the old carnival weight guesser about this one. It makes you wonder if vegans look a mite greener, perhaps. Next up, drive through kiosks that guess your order based on your car.
