There have been many great advances in digital signage technology finding their way into airports, hotel lobbies, convention centers and other travel hubs. Here's a new take on a flight board from the folks at Interknowlogy.
Their NUI (natural user interface) Flights system lets users scroll through flights using hand gestures to find their flight. It also features voice recognition allowing users to speak their airline and flight number. NUI Flights then finds that flight and shows the detailed status. A third method uses facial recognition to support a use case in which a user opts in to let the system recognize one's face and lookup the relevant flight information for display without any other interaction.
The app is powered by FlightStats FIDS API, of course, and will be featured at the upcoming Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas Sands Hotel Expo Center on February 12-13, 2014.
Here's a link to a couple of video demos of NUI Flights available for download on HighTail.
