New York – One World Observatory is using the latest in gesture-based technology for an interactive concierge.
One hundred storeys above the city skyline, One World Observatory offers unparalleled views over the buzzing metropolis below. City Pulse, from media designers Local Projects, helps guests to connect with the landmarks and neighbourhoods they observe from above.
At City Pulse ‘global ambassadors’ are stationed under a ring of HD video monitors fitted with gesture recognition technology. Through pointing or sweeping arm movements, ambassadors can summon images and information to the screen, providing guests with close-up views of the buildings below and investigate areas tailored to each group.
