Shopping Mall Interactive Floor

Displax Interactive Floor and Window

While this blog's main purpose is definitely to celebrate the past, it doesn't hurt to take a little peek now and then at the future we're heading towards, to help put the past we're celebrating into more perspective (like the RFID video I posted a few days ago). If you get where I'm coming from.

So now, behold the new Displax Interactive Floor and Window! In the video above, you'll see an example of one of these informational & advertising products installed in an unnamed shopping mall. Welcome to true Minority Report/Blade Runner territory here, folks...or I guess, as the makers of the Interactive Display, Displax, say on their website: Welcome to the future!

Times sure are changing, aren't they? In my day (yes, insert crotchety old man voice here), high-tech at the shopping mall was getting a t-shirt or mug made with your face on it while you waited, or
maybe doing your own spin-art at a kiosk or looking at birds or monkees in a cage or something. That was all we had and we liked it! But nowadays...

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Im my day (insert old lady voice here) high tech meant my older cousin typing up on an ancient computer in a department store that I was a pig for all the world to see.

I've seen those floor things, they have water splashes and "mood coloring". Get the chills looking at people flock to what's obviously just high-tech advertisements.

this must have been the funky floor-thing I saw at a movie theater in NY last Thanksgiving. It was a novelty, but not really anything more than that. the kids in the theater seemed to really dig it.
