virtual flight attendants at orly airport

23 Aug


at the orly airport in paris, virtual staffmembers are taking the place of some boarding agents,
thanks to the ‘2D holograms’ developed by paris audiovisual marketing agency l’oeil du chat for the airport authority.
video footage of real-life attendants– filmed in a studio greeting and directing passengers– is rear-projected
onto a human-shaped plexiglass form, to be played at the push of a  button (by a real-life boarding agent).
destination information can be shown on virtual placards held by the virtual staff, in an initiative that
the airport authority hopes will be more visible and easier to understand than traditional electronic display terminals.
